The CAMHS Learning Disability Team provide a service to children and young people with moderate, severe or profound learning disability who are unable to access a mental health assessment within the specialist CAMHS service.
Children and young people with this level of learning disability may develop complex patterns of behaviour which can be distressing. This can include hurting themselves and other people and it can be difficult to keep them safe.
The CAMHS Learning Disability Team has a specific role in assessing the young person to establish whether there is a mental health condition.
Once your referral has been accepted you will be contacted by a member of the team who will arrange to meet you at a suitable venue; this could be at one of our bases, your home or at your child’s school.
