The 2018 National Round Table on Intellectual Disability Mental Health, organised by the UNSW Sydney’s Department of Developmental Disability Neuropsychiatry, NSW Council for Intellectual Disability, and our research partnerships team, was held yesterday at UNSW Sydney.

Mental health for more than 400,000 people in NSW living with an intellectual disability was the focus of the roundtable.

NSW Minister for Health and Medical Research, Brad Hazzard, opened the event by addressing the barriers that people with intellectual disability can face when accessing appropriate mental health services and support.
