Intellectual disability is a lifelong condition involving deficits in both intellectual and adaptive functioning. Individuals with intellectual disability experience a greater burden of co-occurring physical and mental illness compared to the general population, and often need a significant degree of support from healthcare professionals and carers, as well as family and friends. Additionally, their lives can be greatly influenced both positively and negatively by
the cultures in which they exist, including societal attitudes, belief systems and norms.An insightful addition to the Oxford Cultural Psychiatry series, Psychiatry of Intellectual
Disability across Cultures explores the health, support structures, and societal attitudes towards people with intellectual disabilities throughout the world.Written by international experts of intellectual disability and mental health, this comprehensive textbook covers broad topics such as anthropology, mental health, physical health, research, and sexuality. It also comprises chapters dedicated to specific geographic regions, such as Africa, America,
Australasia, Europe, India, the Middle East, and the United Kingdom and Ireland.
