My Health Matters folder
We are working to make the My Health Matters folder even better.
The health team are expecting to launch the new version of the My Health Matters Folder in November 2023.
My Health Matters is an Easy Read folder created to improve communication between people with an intellectual disability and their healthcare providers.
The My Health Matters folder is made by people with an intellectual disability for people with disability.
- It lets people know if you use an app, a picture board, sign language or your voice to communicate.
- It will help you explain if you need someone to stick to one topic at a time.
- It has a place for you to write your questions for the doctor.
You can download and print your own copy (5.3MB).
If you have any questions, please call us on 1800 424 065.
