Over half of people with a learning disability have a mental health problem.

These mental health issues are often driven by factors such as isolation or discrimination, which disproportionally affect people with learning disabilities.

This is a hidden epidemic of trauma affecting some of the most vulnerable people in society.

Help change this by donating to our Kind2Mind appeal from 14 to 28 May, with every donation instantly doubled for free.
