We are a CAMHS team offering assessment and intervention for children and young people (aged 0-18 years) who have a diagnosis of Learning Disability or Global Developmental Delay and mental health difficulties and/or significant challenging behaviour. We also offer consultation and training to parents, carers, schools and other professionals supporting the child.
To be referred to the team children/young people must meet all of the following referral criteria:
- Have an Ealing GP
- Age 0-18 years
- Have a diagnosis of Learning Disability** or Global Developmental Delay or Complex Physical Disabilities
- Have mental health difficulties or significant challenging behaviour that cannot be supported by more universal services.
- Parents (or young person if over 16) have consented to the referral
**The team use the WHO definition of a Learning Disability (IQ below 70, significant impairment in adaptive living skills, and difficulties present since childhood). The team will also accept referrals for all children attending an Ealing LA Special School (i.e. Springhallow, Belvue, St Ann’s, Castlebar, Mandeville and John Chilton special schools).
All complaints should be directed to the Patient and Advice Liason Service (PALS) for West London Mental Health Trust.
