Summary "Learning Disabilities and Mental Health provides an evidence-based perspective on the care of individuals with learning disabilities and mental health problems.

Many learning disability nurses and a significant number of mental health nurses are in daily contact with this group, and their complex needs are not often well understood."--BOOK JACKET
