Depression and anxiety are the most common types of mental illness in the UK. People with a learning disability are much more likely to experience mental health issues like these than the general population. This training looks at the latest research as to why this is and how to support someone with a learning disability to understand these conditions.
We will take a detailed look at these common mental health issues and most importantly, the best ways to treat them and stay well.

Course includes:

  • What is depression and anxiety?
  • How does it affect the mind and body?
  • How can depression and anxiety affect someone with a learning disability?
  • How do we recognise depression and anxiety in others
  • How to help someone with a learning disability understand depression and anxiety
  • Ways of treating depression and anxiety and how to stay well.

Designed for
