This module uses an interactive case scenario approach to help those involved in nursing care to gain the knowledge required to identify when a mental illness might be present and how to respond to this. It is aimed at anyone providing care, either regularly or sporadically, to a person with an intellectual disability.

  1. identify the reasons why a person with an intellectual disability might be likely to have a mental illness
