Maine Developmental Disabilities Council

Welcome to the Maine Developmental Disabilities Council.  The Council is a partnership of people with developmental disabilities, family members, and state and local agencies and organizations. We are committed to creating a Maine in which all people are valued and respected because we believe communities are stronger when everyone is included.  To do this, we create and support policy advocacy for individuals with developmental disabilities.

Please check out our history and the variety of resources on our site.  Our latest project, Out of the Shadows, can be accessed through the link below.  Out of the Shadows is the story of mental institution in our state and it includes interviews with residents now living in the community.
