Supporting children and young people with learning disabilities and mental health needs

The last three decades of research into the mental health of children and young people with learning disabilities has consistently shown there is a high prevalence of mental health disorders in this population. This conference will explore the overlap of challenging behaviour and mental health disorders, and explore the lack of understanding of the nature and manifestation of mental health disorders, which produce a complex and perplexing picture in terms of detection, diagnosis and therapeutic services. Aims of the conference * Provide an overview of policies and developments for young people with learning disabilities and mental health needs * Give a variety of service provider perspectives: public health, transition, commissioning, working with minority groups, autism and learning disabilities * Enable delegates to participate in interactive learning through the range of workshops * Facilitate networking across all attendees Key themes • Policy overview and developments • Service provision • Transition • Commissioning • Ethnicity and Diversity
