Introduction to Mental Health and Mental Well-being for Staff Supporting Adults with Intellectual Disabilities is a training and self study resource which has been developed for a range of care and support staff who work with adults with intellectual disabilities and provides a full day’s training. It aims to provide learners with an understanding of the mental health needs of this population and to promote mental health and wellbeing.
The materials will also be of value to clinicians and support professionals relatively new to either mental health or intellectual disability, as well as students undertaking relevant courses. Through video clips and exercises, the materials give voice to the experiences and insights of people with intellectual disabilities who experience mental health issues. The resource includes slides and other online resources, guided self-learning and a separate Pavilion reader ‘An Introduction to Supporting the Mental Health of People with Intellectual Disabilities’ in digital format.
