Vanderbilt University Disability Identity Development Survey
Researchers at Vanderbilt University are conducting a study on identity development in ADULTS who identify as having disabilities. The study consists of a survey that takes no more than 30 minutes to complete. It contains basic questions about yourself, your disability, your interactions with others, involvement with the disability community and perceptions about your identity. If you choose to participate, you may enter your contact information to enter a drawing for a $100 Amazon gift card.

Seeking Prescribers for WITH Research Study
to Test Best Practice Prescribing Guidelines
The Center for START Services at the University of New Hampshire Institute on Disability/UCED has been awarded a grant to work in collaboration with prescribers, family members and individuals with lived experiences to develop Holistic Best Practice Prescribing Guidelines in MH/IDD for Healthcare Providers. Once completed, these guidelines will be made widely available. The Holistic Best Practice Prescribing Guidelines in MH/IDD for Healthcare Providers will include a comprehensive reference list of resources for best practices, and key information aimed toward effective, inter-disciplinary, integrated mental healthcare for people with IDD.

The purpose of this project is to develop and test the guidelines with prescribers across the country. We are seeking at least 100 physician participants.

If you are a prescriber and are interested in participating, you can sign up using the link below. If you are a provider, please distribute this material to prescribers in your network that may be interested.
