NADD Research Journal

The Journal of Mental Health Research in Intellectual Disabilities (JMHRID), the official research journal of NADD, is the only professional research journal dedicated to relevant, contemporary, peer-reviewed research that focuses on topics unique to people experiencing an IDD/MI dual diagnosis and their support systems around them.  As the leading publication on this topic, JMHRID provides the community supporting people experiencing dual diagnoses with access to a rich database of research.  NADD members are able to access this database.

Empirically-based research considered for publication include exploring characteristics of people experiencing dual diagnoses, risk factors, protective factors, development of screening or diagnostic tools, evaluation of treatment programs, evaluation of medication treatment, literature review, and quantitative meta-analyses – other research may be considered on a case-by-case basis. 

JMHRID is published quarterly, and is a benefit of NADD membership.
