Taylor and Francis,

This article considers the labelling of people with 'mental retardation' in Ghana against the background of the major underpinning models of disability. The influences of these models on individuals and on services and provisions are discussed. It is argued that traditional and religious beliefs, in addition to present day attitudes within the community, are influences on the perception of 'mental retardation' in Ghana
