Kongress: 11th European Congress of Mental Health in Intellectual Disability, 21. - 23. September 2017 (Flyer)
'Better Mental Health for People with Intellectual Disability'
Providing better care using knowledge transfer and bringing together innovative collaborative networks
"Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." (WHO 1946)
Like the rest of the population, the mental health of people with intellectual disabilities is best understood in a much wider context of their general well-being, their supports and networks, their family and social setting and the broader aspects of the society that have significant impacts on their health and health inequalities. The Congress will bring together current knowledge and expertise in this wider context, looking at how people with intellectual disabilities, their families and their social and professional networks all have important experience and skills to contribute and share in creating and developing effective, collaborative and co-productive models of service provision.
