Training in intellectual disability mental health

Would you like to gain knowledge, skills and confidence to improve the mental health care of people with an intellectual disability?

People with an intellectual disability have a higher rate of mental disorders than the general population, but have less access to mental health care.

The University of New South Wales is providing online training in intellectual disability mental health, in partnership with Ageing Disability and Home Care, NSW Health and the Health Education and Training Institute. You can work through the training at your own pace.
