Intellectual Disability and Mental Health:

Prof Julian Trollor on Intellectual Disability Mental Health
University of NSW, 3 December 2015 (video 57m)

Another doctor with particular expertise and experience, academic and clinical is Prof Julian Trollor, the first Head of the Department of Developmental Disability Neuropsychiatry and Professor of Intellectual Disability Mental Health at the University of NSW. He delivered his inaugural professional lecture on International Day for People with Disability (3 December 2015).

Prof Trollor's talk is grounded in the experience of NSW citizens with intellectual disability needing to access mental health care, and strategic planning for better outcomes for them.

The Department of Developmental Disability Neuropsychiatry is known as 3DN, and maintains a very useful website providing information and resources for academics, professionals, carers and the community. A great deal of very important work is being done here, that deserves to be better known.
