European service perspectives for people with intellectual disabilities and mental health problems

  • Geraldine Holt (a1), Helen Costello (a2) and Nick Bouras (a3)

Abstract

Services for people with intellectual disabilities, in the UK as elsewhere, have changed dramatically over the last 30 years; deinstitutionalisation has probably been the largest experiment in social policy in our time. The vast majority of people with intellectual disabilities, their families and carers have benefited from having a better quality of life as a result of deinstitutionalisation. However, much still needs to be done to integrate this population more into society and to ensure they are offered the appropriate supports to meet their needs.
