Insights 15 - Reasonable Adjustments in Mental Health

Posted: 11/01/13

People with autism or learning disabilities may have mental health problems – just like anyone else. However, when they try and get help, the mental health service does not always do the right thing.

We wrote a Guide full of ideas about what can be done in mental health services to make things better. The ideas came from things services are already doing. Some things are easy and cheap to do, while others need a change of attitude and some new skills.

This insight is aimed at mental health commissioners and providers, but it will also be of interest to people working in learning disability services and to people and their families who are concerned about how mental health needs are met for people with autism or learning disabilities.
