One size does not fit all: mental health services access for people with intellectual/learning disability requires individualised planning and education/training programmes for health and social care providers
Research describes individuals with a learning/intellectual disability as more prone to a range of additional physical and mental health problems than the general population.1 This vulnerable group often has negative experiences while receiving treatment, which can escalate their anxiety and coping mechanisms, leaving them feeling invisible. This can lead to between 25% and 39% of these individuals experiencing mental health problems (Source: Current Awareness Service for Health (CASH))

The Coronavirus Pandemic ’s Outsized Effect on Women’s Mental Health Around the World
COVID-19 is a devilishly versatile disease, attacking all manner of body systems and doing all manner of damage—to the lungs, the heart, the liver, the kidneys. Though it doesn’t attack the mind directly, the pandemic the virus has caused has been devastating to mental health, and in many cases, the most vulnerable group is women. In a new study conducted by CARE, a non-profit international aid organization, investigators have found that while almost nobody is spared from the anxiety, worry and overall emotional fatigue of the coronavirus pandemic, women are almost three times as likely as men to report sufferi...

What Your Blood Tells You About Cancer
Blood tests can tell us a lot about what’s going on in our bodies—from whether we’re eating too much sugar to whether we’re harboring any infectious diseases. Scientists lately have been working on ways to use similar diagnostic tools for cancer, which have the potential to dramatically increase the amount of information doctors use to figure out the best treatments for their patients. Called liquid biopsies, these tests are designed to pick up genetic material shed by cancer tumors into the blood, which lets doctors avoid the invasive procedures needed to extract samples directly from tumors.
