Learning disabilities

Our trust serves all communities affected by mental health issues. We are aware that some people are more likely to experience mental health issues than others. Those people with learning disabilities are more likely than the general population to experience mental ill health. Our trust is committed to ensuring that people with learning disabilities get equal access to all of our mental health services.

In order to provide the best possible service to our learning disabilities patients, we work closely with other local agencies and health organisations. The documents and links contained on this page help our staff, patients, carers and the public to communicate with, and care for our learning disabilities clients to the best possible extent.
