Welcome to

American Center for Intellectual and Diverse Disorders

ACIDD recognizes the urgent need to address, and educate the public about the seriousness of mental illness. In the context of COVID-19 pandemic, it is likely that there will be substantial increase in mental health issues in the world. People will be more anxious and depressed, substance use will increase, social issues such as domestic violence, crime and child abuse will flourish. It is necessary to plan for the inevitability of loneliness of people due to social distancing.

Our focus has been mainly in the State of Maryland in the US. To know more about our services in Maryland, please visit our programs in Maryland. We also have services planned for people in Florida. Internationally, in India-Asia and Sierra Leone-Africa, we have projects initiated in mental health services.

I am aware of the impact of mental disorder, but feel the charm of meaningful life that matters to me, and I believe, it was created for the bliss of souls like mine. Thank you !

I was incapable of drawing a single stroke in the past; and today I feel that I am a greater artist than in the past. Art and drawing brought changes to my mind, thanks to messages that I find throughout these pages! .
