Developmental Disability Services
What We Do
Netcare Access offers specialized crisis and assessment services for adults, 18 years and older, with a dual diagnosis of mental illness and and/or developmental disabilities.
Our dedicated Development Disabilities Specialist acts as a liaison between the Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities and the Franklin County ADAMH system to coordinate services ensuring continuity of care for the client. Mental health assessments are completed for linkage to agencies providing longer-term services, and referrals are made to other community resources that may benefit the individual. Consultation occurs with other providers serving the client and crisis alerts are generated which include plans for managing a client’s crisis when it occurs.
The Netcare DD Specialist completes more than 400 consultations each year with professionals and consumers working to prevent crisis situations with the Developmental Disability population in Franklin County.
Referrals to our Specialist typically come from the Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities, but if you have questions about this service please call and you can be directed to our DD Specialist for further information.
