Abstract

The last three decades of research shows there is a high prevalence of children and young people with a learning disability and mental health disorder. The overlap of challenging behaviour and mental health disorders along with the lack of understanding of the nature and manifestation of mental health disorders in this population produce a complex and perplexing picture in terms of detection, diagnosis and therapeutic services. This book aims to explore issues relating to the care of children and young people with learning disabilities with mental health needs. Developing evidence based practice is a key theme of this book. We believe that through the consolidation of the evidence for assessment, intervention, service provision and safeguarding issues, professionals will be able to provide high quality personalised care for children and young people with learning disabilities who have mental health needs.
