These are Fact Sheets for Families, Advocates, Disability Workers and Other Professions on Health and People with Intellectual Disability

Many people have contributed to the Healthier Lives fact sheets.

The fact sheets were researched and written by Jenny Galea, Helena O’Connell, Edwina Pickering and Jim Simpson.

The Department of Family and Community Services, Ageing Disability and Home Care, funded the project.
