Module 3 - Assessment of Mental Health for People with an Intellectual Disability
Key Learning Points:


A mental health assessment involves

getting  sufficient information to make a

diagnosis but also to try and understand

the person.


The assessment process may have to be

modified to account for the difficulties

arising when the person has an

intellectual disability.


Understanding what an assessment

consists of will help carers to make

meaningful contributions to the process.
