Intellectual Disability and Health

On the 7.30 report recently there was a story reported by Elise Worthington which highlighted the perils faced by people with an intellectual disability when presenting to medical facilities for assistance.

Although this story focused on intellectual disability, the difficulties faced by individuals with mental health issues are similar. The story and research discussed raises the importance of good communication skills and understanding among health professionals, individuals and in the community at large.
