Wernert Center • Unison Health • Zepf Center “Dual diagnosis” has been used to refer to the occurrence of both a mental illness and a developmental disability (see the reverse for a definition) in the same person. Some examples of developmental challenges are: intellectual disability, (also known as mental retardation); learning disability; Down syndrome; Prader-Willi syndrome and autism spectrum disorder. Concurrent diagnosis refers to the presence of an addiction as well as a mental illness. However, in the United States, they use the term dual diagnosis to refer to this condition. Co-morbid, or co-occurring disorders means they are commonly found together in the same person, (i.e. AD/HD plus obsessive-compulsive disorder). For our reference and for many other professionals, dual diagnosis is referring to a developmental disability PLUS a diagnosis of a mental health disorder. EATING DISORDERS LOCAL RESOURCES • Children’s Resource Center • Comprehensive Behavioral Health Services, LLC • Empowered for Excellence Behavioral Health • Family Service of Northwest Ohio • Harbor Behavioral Health • Kobacker Center The University of Toledo Medical • Lutheran Social Services of Northwestern Ohio • National Alliance on Mental Illness of Greater Toledo (NAMI) • New Concepts • ProMedica Behavioral Health Services • ProMedica Toledo Children’s Hospital Pediatric Psychiatry • Recovery Services of Northwest Ohio • A Renewed Mind • Rescue Mental Health & Addiction Services • RFS Charitable Foundation • River Centre Clinic • Unison Health • Zepf Center Eating disorders include anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder. Food restrictions, food rituals, binge eating, starving, purging or compulsive physical activity are some of the behaviors of people with eating disorders. Eating disorders can be difficult to detect. Glamorization of so-called ideal bodies, coupled with the view that dieting is a normal activity, can obscure a person’s eating problems. It can be difficult for a person with an eating disorder to admit they have a problem, let alone someone whose life is inhibited by weight preoccupation. Gaining an understanding of these conditions is the first step in the journey to wellness. Education and awareness activities are crucial.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
