Our Mental Health of Learning Disability team launch a booklet of creativity to mark Learning Disability Week

Date added: 15 June 2021

This week is Learning Disabilities Week 2021 and the theme is art and creativity. 

The West Kent Mental Health of Learning Disability (MHLD) team have been working in partnership with a local day service during lockdown and the talented service users have worked hard to produce a variety of pieces of creative writing and art work - a project they had begun before the theme of this year's week was announced but has created the perfect opportunity for the team to launch. 

The purpose of the project is to inform and educate members of the community about learning disabilities and dispel myths that often lead to misinformation and inequality. The second element is offer insight from those with lived experience, offering an alternative narrative of strength and resilience.
