Lewisham Mental Health and Learning Disabilities Service

How our service can help you

The Lewisham MHLD service provides community-based psychiatric and psychological assessment, advice and treatment for people, aged over 18, who live in the London Borough of Lewisham. We care for adults with mental health problems and learning disabilities who may have emotional, behavioural, and social, communication or physical difficulties.

We provide care for people with mental health problems and complex needs including behaviours that challenge.

We are a multi professional team including psychologists, behavioural support specialists, nurses and psychiatrists. We work with other health and social care teams as part of the Mental Health Learning Disability Service (MHLD) Neurodevelopment Division.

We provide mental health assessments, therapy and advice on services and treatment options to help people with learning disabilities maintain their health and independence.

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
