Intellectual and Developmental Disability & Mental Illness

Supporting your needs with specialized care.

Approximately one third (32.9%) of individuals with an intellectual and/or developmental disability also struggle with behavioral health.*

NorthPointe recognizes the difficulties that individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilties face and our staff works to balance care and independence for a successful and fulfilled life.

Individuals will receive additional support to help better understand their emotions, thoughts, and experiences. With increased opportunities and resources individuals will develop a supportive network to help guide them towards achievement.
