Our Work in Mental Health, Learning Disabilities and Neurodiversity
In this seminar we will share our work in mental health, learning disabilities and neurodiversity. In DPT our occupational therapists work across acute in-patient care, rehabilitation, community based care, specialist care, support for children and young people and crisis care. Occupational therapy provides a wide range of assessment and treatment in each of these areas. In DPT occupational therapy is critical to delivering care in all our settings. Please come along and hear about the diverse work that our OTs are doing in to support good mental health and well-being for the people of Devon.
