Information for people with learning disability and their
The Royal College of Psychiatrists' Faculty of the Psychiatry of
Learning Disability and the Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust
have produced a new series of very accessible information for
people with mental health problems and learning
disabilities. All these materials have been written and tested with
people with learning disabilities and their carers.
These leaflets can be easily printed off from this page. The
help and support section at the end of each leaflet can
be completed by the person being given this information, to include
contact details of their GP, Psychiatrist, Community Nurse or any
other professional involved in their care.
This series of leaflets was produced by 2gether NHS Foundation
Trust and A Picture of Health website developers and funded by the
South West Strategic Health Authority. The text is very close to
the leaflets above (with a few minor changes) with permission of
the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
The pictures are thanks to the Cotswold Grange, Cheltenham and
Stroud Drop in Service actors group. Thanks also to the Bitton
Village Community Theatre in South Gloucestershire.
