Improving mental health for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities

Working primarily in the NDIS space, Nourished Not Deprived clinicians have developed an array of expertise and knowledge within this area of healthcare.

Mental health and Intellectual disability therapies

Amble evidence has shown that when we are able to maintain a healthy diet, alongside implementing healthy brain habits, well-being and quality of life improves.

We also understand that if our mental wellbeing is not of high quality, that our eating behaviours can suffer, and vice versa.

Resultantly, mental illness can disrupt not only our eating patterns, but our everyday tasks such as cooking, shopping, budgeting for groceries and mobility.

Not only can poor mental health disrupt our eating patterns, it can also impact our interoception.
Interoception relates to our ability to understand our bodily cues, including hunger and when we need to go to the toilet.

Nourished Not Deprived’s Allied health team focus on both mental and physical wellbeing, implementing trauma and mental health informed care at every step of your journey to:

  • Improve quality of life with everyday tasks
  • Improve quality of life around meal times
  • Implement strategies to assist with psychosocial capacity
  • Implement strategies for the family and carers to provide interventions to improve the environment
  • Enhance independent living skills
  • Enhance communication and social skills
  • Identify disordered eating behaviours and patterns
  • Identify assistive technology required to improve quality of life
