Abstract: Over 3 years, routine collection of demographic and clinical data has yielded informative material on certain characteristics and clinical outcomes of a particular consumer group. The group under study has been drawn from referrals taken by The Victorian Dual Disability Service (VDDS) from Victorian public mental health services (AMHS) during the specified period. Using the Health of the Nation Outcome Scales – Learning Disability (LD) and the Clinical Global Improvement Scale (CGI) as measuring instruments pre- and post-intervention and certain demographic material gathered in a clinical-research database, this paper provides an overview of particular characteristics of the sample.
