Mental health problems

Mental health problems are common in people with learning disabilities, but it can be hard to tell if the person you care for has one. This could be because problems with their physical health or their behaviour are making it hard to notice the symptoms, or because they can't show or tell you how they are feeling. All staff who care for and support people with learning disabilities need to understand this, and take extra care to pick up on problems.
