Thank you from all of us at NADD
NADD has thrived because so many have generously offered their time and talent as well as their financial resources to support our mission through publications, programs, trainings, consultations, and conferences. For 30 years, thanks to your support, NADD has been improving the quality of life for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities co-occurring with mental illness by:
- Facilitating a more accurate diagnosis. An accurate diagnosis results in better treatment outcomes, which result in an improved quality of life.
- Raising standards of care. Programs providing services to individuals with a dual diagnosis (IDD/MI) seek accreditation from NADD. Clinicians and Direct Support Professionals seek competency-based certification from NADD.
- Offering high quality training opportunities and instructional materials. Through the dissemination of cutting edge knowledge NADD has been influential in the development of appropriate community based policies, programs, and opportunities for individuals with IDD.

NADD’s Ongoing Work
The Annual Fund sets the course for NADD to maintain its tradition of innovation and standards of professional excellence. The Annual Fund helps support NADD’s Accreditation and Certification Programs, the Revision of the DM-ID, conferences, webinars and other trainings, consultations, and advocacy for best practices to improve the lives of individuals with a dual diagnosis.
Scholarships for NADD Conferences
The Scholarship Funds enable NADD to financially assist individuals who provide care to persons who have a dual diagnosis to attend and participate in NADD conferences and trainings.
The Family Issues Scholarship Fund financially assists family members of loved ones diagnosed with a dual diagnosis to attend and participate in NADD conferences where they can participate in the conference, and engage with other families and experts in the field.
The Joli Fletcher Tlalka Scholarship Fund, named in memory of the daughter of NADD’s Founder, Robert J. Fletcher, who herself was a DSP supporting individuals with a dual diagnosis. This fund financially assists Direct Support Professionals to attend and participate in NADD conferences where innovative information is available to assist them in providing care to individuals who have a dual diagnosis.

“The NADD competency-based clinical certification has provided me with an avenue to verify a dual diagnosis specialty. My ability to provide clinical supports to individuals supported both by medical assistance and private insurances has been expanded by allowing me to gain access to closed insurance networks. These networks had been closed to me prior to receiving this certification, allowing this population to remain largely unserved outside of community mental health centers.”
