Workshop Details

Presenter: Kim Shontz, LCSW - Director, Illinois Crisis Prevention Network Support Service Teams

Bio: Kim Shontz, LCSW, is the Director of the Illinois Crisis Prevention Network (ICPN). ICPN provides support service teams funded by the Illinois Department of Human Services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities experiencing behavioral and/or medical challenges in their current residential setting across the state. Kim previously served as the deputy director of the Behavioral Health program at Trinity Services, providing residential and psycho-social rehabilitation day program services supporting people dually diagnosed with mental illness and intellectual disabilities.


Workshop Title: Overview of Dual Diagnosis

Workshop Overview: People with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities are at a higher risk of co-occurring mental health issues - aka the "other" dual diagnosis. Historically, diagnostic overshadowing precluded people from receiving mental health services. Understanding the importance of accurate diagnosis and identifying how the symptoms of mental illness may present in a person with IDD is essential to ethical and effective mental health treatment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the history of treatment for people dually diagnosed with an intellectual/developmental disability and a mental illness
  • Identify the importance of an accurate diagnosis to inform treatment planning
  • Utilize the DM-ID to understand symptoms and diagnostic criteria for people with an Intellectual/developmental disability
