Meeting the needs of young adults with Learning Disabilities
Many adults with complex needs are unable to access the support they need, which leaves them isolated and vulnerable.
This lack of timely appropriate support can result in unnecessary mental health deterioration and reliance on high-cost acute services.
The right support at the right time can have a significant positive impact on quality of life, outcomes and value for money.
The Government’s Mandate to the NHS 2017-18 and previous Mandates, have set an objective for the NHS to reduce the health gap between people with mental health problems, learning disabilities, autism and the population as a whole, and to support them to live full, healthy and independent lives.
