Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services – Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities
Provides leadership, in partnership with others, to prevent disability, build resilience in individuals and their communities, and facilitate recovery for people whose lives have been affected by mental illness, intellectual disability or other developmental disability, or substance abuse. It is the mission of the Division of Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities (DDID) to empower each person to realize his or her place in the community as a citizen of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. To accomplish this mission, DDID will partner with and support persons with intellectual or developmental disabilities, families, advocates, stakeholders and government agencies. It is the responsibility of DDID to provide an array of supports for individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities. This is accomplished through contracting for services through the 14 Regional Boards and other qualified private providers. Services that are funded by DDID and provided in varying degrees by each of the Regional Mental Retardation Centers and their affiliates include case management, residential services, vocational services, respite services, crisis intervention services, leisure and recreation services, in-home support, and habilitative services. DDID comprises two branches – the Supports for Community Living Waiver Branch and the Community Support Branch.
