Service description

The CAMHS Learning Disability team supports young people with a moderate to profound learning/intellectual disability (as defined within ICD10/ICD11) who are also experiencing mental health difficulties and/or associated behaviours. Support is provided through our outpatient service which includes specialist parent workshops as well as individual work with patients, families and carers. You can be referred to this service by health or social service professionals.

As part of the service, we have outreach staff who can provide short term intensive input within the home when necessary. This is to support parents/carers to implement strategies advised by their lead professional or specialist clinician which they may be struggling to do without direct input.

Referral criteria

Young people up to age 18 with moderate to profound learning/intellectual disability (as defined wihtin ICD10/ICD11) presenting with mental health and/or associated behaviours.
