MS CDD is an appointed group of people designed to support individuals with developmental disabilities, their families and the community they live. We are not a direct service organization, but develop strategies to support advocacy, systems change, and capacity building for the people we advocate.
The Mississippi Department of Mental Health serves as our Designated State Agency (DSA). MS CDD operates independently within the DSA, but receives much support to maintain the management of our operation.
Our office is on the 5th Floor of the Robert E. Lee State Office Building, 239 North Lamar Street, Jackson, Mississippi 39201.

All people with developmental disabilities should have the opportunity to be contributing members of their communities; to make real choices; to have confidence to strive; to have freedom to excel; to have supports to achieve individual goals; to influence policy; to determine services that affect their lives; and to recognize that they have the same rights, privileges, and power to make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others.
