Focus group about what makes a good mental health professional

From 3DN (Department of Developmental Disability Neuropsychiatry, UNSW):

What is this project about?

3DN at the University of New South Wales wants to improve the quality of mental health care provided to people with an intellectual disability. We have a project that aims to identify the qualities that mental health professionals need to provide high quality care to people with an intellectual disability.

Who can participate?

Family members, friends, advocates and other people who support a person with an intellectual disability and co-occurring mental ill health.

What will it involve?

Participation will involve attending a focus group. This will take approximately 2 hours.

During this focus group you will talk with other family members and support people about what qualities make a good mental health professional.

What will this information be used for?

This information will help us to know what the workforce needs to learn and do to provide high quality mental health care to people with an intellectual disability.

What do I do if I would like more information? What do I do if I am interested in participating?
