Abstract

Significantly more young people who have learning disabilities suffer from mental health problems than the general population for this age group (Borthwick‐Duffy, 1994, Emerson & Hatton, 2007). However, for a number of reasons these mental health problems are not identified early. Tier one staff who support people with learning disabilities are often unaware of the need to promote positive mental health or where to go locally for more advice and support if they are concerned. The CANDLE resource aims to provide accessible material that can be used in a range of ways, across a number of services and settings, to support these young people with their mental health.
