How might that impact on your mental health, well-being and self-esteem?
In June 2014, FACS delivered two workshops for the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust at their Disability Staff Network Conference. The workshops explored what it can mean to be deafblind, covering both congenital and acquired deafblind needs; exploring the various challenges and barriers to service provision and how additional mental health, learning and cognitive disabilities can create a further distinct impact on their well-being.
Dementia and deafblindness for example, can share similar characteristics; how do you know you are supporting your service users effectively? For more information on deafblind training relating to mental health, learning disability and dementia, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
