Supporting Intellectual Disability – Mental Health E-Learning
3DN provides free e-Learning about intellectual disability to professionals, carers, and consumers. Their goal is to improve your knowledge, skills and confidence, leading to better mental health and well-being for people with an intellectual disability.
This site was designed to be an interactive educational resource for everyone with interest in intellectual disability mental health. The site has been divided into specific sections to cater to health professionals, disability professionals, consumers, and families/carers.
The site may also be useful for students and other professionals who want to learn more about intellectual disability and mental health.
The content of the modules was developed by a team of professionals with clinical, project and research experience and representing the health, welfare and disability sectors. People with an intellectual disability also had a role in developing content for the site, as you will see when you progress through the modules.
