The Connxxions Program started on November 1, 2004 and we recently celebrated fifteen years of serving the IDD/MH population. Fifteen years ago, most mental health providers believed you could not have an intellectual disability and a mental health concern. Therefore, programs for this dual population were almost non-existent. Today, Meridian’s Connxxions Program serves 1,600+ patients in 37 counties and has more than 60 developmental disability provider partners. We are on the cutting-edge of intensive community based interventions and dual diagnosis care in general. We are also, fully engaged in improving areas of outcome measures, integrated care, and trauma work for the population we serve.
