Hi, my name is Jim Kelly. I serve as the Coordinator of programs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities for the Detroit Wayne Community Mental Health Authority. I’ve had a varied career working with people with disabilities and their families in a number of settings, ranging from advocacy organizations to agencies providing employment and residential support services. During my career, I’ve also worked with people experiencing serious and persistent mental illness as well as those who were homeless.
As part of the Clinical Practice team, I oversee the development, implementation and monitoring of IDD services. In addition, I assists in the development and delivery of technical assistance, practice innovation, education strategies and policy development for our provider network and the community at large.
I received my bachelor’s degree from University of Michigan and my master’s degree from Wayne State University where I studied Rehabilitation and Community Inclusion and specialized in supportive employment. I am a State of Michigan licensed professional counselor.
Please feel free to browse our website or contact me for additional information or assistance. I may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
