An integral part of the Mental Health-Learning Disabilities services provided by the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust is the Estia Centre.  The Estia Centre is a training, research and development resource that specialises in the mental health needs of adults with learning disabilities. The Estia Centre aims to support the development of a competent workforce, from support staff to experienced managers and from a variety of services. We hope to achieve this by offering a high quality portfolio of training opportunities, including workshops, conferences, training publications, journals and good practice guidance.  The Centre is also part of the Institute of Psychiatry, where we aim to improve the care of adults with learning disabilities and mental health needs through our research initiatives that develop evidence-based practice
