Welcome to Solutions Building
The Certificate of Excellence was developed by the Solutions Building Community Collaborative in San Diego to support continued expertise in the area of Dual Diagnosis (a developmental disability combined with a mental health disorder). The Collaborative was funded by the California State Department of Developmental Services, and is co-sponsored by San Diego Regional Center and San Diego County’s Health & Human Services Agency.
