Mental health is a critical part of a person’s general health and functioning. If compromised, mental health
problems can have a profound negative consequence on daily functioning and well-being. Mental Health
First Aid is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis.
The first aid is given until appropriate professional treatment is received or until the crisis resolves. In order
to help people provide initial support for someone with a mental health problem, a 12 hour Mental Health
First Aid (MHFA) training course was developed in 2000 by Betty Kitchener and Professor Tony Jorm. The
aim is to improve mental health literacy of members in the Australian community.
There is increasing evidence that people with Intellectual Disability are at increased risk of developing
mental health problems. Mental illness is therefore an important problem to identify. A person with an
intellectual disability may have problems expressing their thoughts, putting together sentences, learning
new skills, doing day to day tasks, making decisions, and remembering things. As a consequence when they
experience a mental health issue it may not be recognised. Behaviours that may be associated with the
presence of an intellectual disability may mask symptoms. In addition, medical practitioners or carers may
assume that difficult behaviours are due to somebody’s intellectual disability, instead of considering the
possibility of mental health issues. Getting the right support can also be difficult but there are many
effective treatments. These treatments work best when there is good coordination between the mental
health service provider and disability services.
This workshop aims to provide information pertinent in identifying steps in managing episodes of mental
illness and the important elements in promoting healthy practices for people with mental illness and
intellectual disability. Consideration will be given to the unique needs of people with intellectual disability
during this workshop.
Target group: Staff working in contact with a person who has mental illness and an intellectual disability.
