11 January 2017
The British Association of Art Therapists have formally supported the development of the Learning Disabilities: Identifying and Managing Mental Health Problems Quality Standard (QS142).
This quality standard covers the prevention, assessment and management of mental health problems in people with learning disabilities in all settings (including health, social care, education, and forensic and criminal justice). It also covers family members, carers and care workers.
We are pleased to announce that the quality standard has now been published by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence and can be viewed by clicking on this link:
