Merchandise Description

Author: Nick Bouras, M.D., Ph.D., FRCPsych, Division of Psychiatry and Psychology, UMDS - Guy's Hospital, United Kingdom

Description:

The emphasis of enabling people with chronic disabilities to remain in their local community, even if they have additional complex needs including psychiatric disorders, has drastically influenced the delivery of mental health services. There is a presumption that the psychiatric services will be available locally to meet the individual's varied needs. This presentation will concentrate on the interventions available by mental health professionals in community based services for people with mental retardation and additional mental health needs.
