Abstract

Purpose of reviewTo summarize recent research on psychosocial interventions for people with intellectual disabilities and mental ill-health.Recent findingsPsychosocial interventions for people with intellectual disabilities and mental ill-health are poorly developed. Recent research has focused upon individual therapeutic interventions and the evaluation of structures for the delivery of services to people with intellectual disabilities and mental ill-health. There is little research that has examined psychosocial interventions with carers or families, and the impact of housing, leisure and employment for this group of people.SummaryAs people with intellectual disabilities are increasingly recognized as having severe and enduring mental ill-health, the development of an evidence base for psychosocial intervention is of considerable importance.
