Mental Health Info Pack for People with a Learning Disability

13-19 May is Mental Health Awareness Week. People with learning disabilities are particularly vulnerable to mental ill-health, in fact research suggests up to 40% of people with learning disabilities are affected by mental health problems.

Netbuddy has teamed up with The Judith Trust to launch a Mental Health Info Pack highlighting some of the issues people with learning disabilities and mental ill-health face, and the resources that are available to support them. Please do share it amongst your own networks, and if you have any resources or tips you'd like to add we'd love to hear from you. Contact us

Also check out our blog to find out about a great UK-wide project for promoting good mental health amongst primary school children with special needs. Zippy's Friends.
