There are a range of forensic difficulties for people with learning disabilities. These include offences related to violence, inappropriate sexual behaviour, and fire setting. These problems are often associated with mental health problems, personality disorders, alcohol and substance abuse and disorders associated with poor impulse control. Generally such problems are confined to people with moderate/mild learning disability and borderline intelligence.

How Danshell supports people with this diagnosis:

Forensic difficulties in people with learning disabilities require a range of specialist input including:

  • Risk assessments for violent and sexual offending
  • An understanding of the issues associated with poor impulse control
  • Knowledge of how to deal with people who suffer from personality disorder and the accurate assessment of associated difficulties such as anxiety, depression poor self-esteem and substance abuse.

This population requires experienced clinicians who have knowledge of the assessment and treatment of associated mental illness. Clinical and nursing staff are extremely highly skilled in dealing with forensic issues and they have a long history of experience in the treatment of people with learning disabilities and forensic problems. Treatment includes medical and psychological interventions for impulse control, treatment for violence and alcohol-related violence, treatment for inappropriate sexual behaviour and promotion of healthy social networks. As with all interventions, quality of life, community engagement and "A Good Life" are uppermost in treatment provision.
