This report explores teaching and learning about mental health and disability within the human growth and development (HGD) curriculum on qualifying social work programmes in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, focusing on these themes as they apply to adults and with special reference to dementia and personalised services within the HGD curricula. It also examines the bridge between learning about each of these topics in higher education based HGD modules and learning about them in placement. It includes a limited review of recent research on the teaching and learning of human growth and development, mental health and disability, building on the scoping study.
