Child and Adolescent Mental Health Learning Disability Service (CAMHLDS)

CAMHS-Learning Disability service is a Tier 3 service providing specialist assessment and treatment for children and young people who have moderate -severe- profound learning disability and present with mental health needs and/or challenging behaviour.
