Service List

  1. Acorn Lodge Children's Unit

    We offer assessment and treatment for children up to and including 12 years of age, who have a an established or suspected mental health disorder which requires a period of intensive assessment and/or treatment. Referrals will be accepted from Tier 3 CAMHS services.

    Our unit works closely with parents or carers to understand their child's needs, the impact of the child’s difficulties on other people around the child, and the effect of those changes upon the family on the child.

    Treatment at Acorn Lodge is based around a weekly, five-day model, allowing the child to spend evenings and weekends home. This model is very important for both the child and the family to help minimise the time away from home, and also to undertake interventions within a community setting. Following assessment, children will be offered a six to eight week programme to engage in education and access one to one therapeutic support from nursing staff and multi-disciplinary team colleagues.

    The education and clinical teams will provide a package of care which best meets the child’s holistic needs and one that can be continued in the community. Our staff are from a variety of specialist backgrounds, including child psychiatry, clinical psychology, nursing, social work and occupational therapy.

    Education is provided on site by specialist teaching staff at the Maudsley and Bethlem Hospital School

  2. ADHD and ASD Services (outpatients)

    From Friday 13 January 2023, the National adult ADHD & ASD outpatient clinic and the National adult ADHD & ASD Psychology Service (NAAAPS) are temporarily closed to new national referrals for an initial period of 6 months. Any referrals sent following this time will not be processed or kept on file. This decision is being reviewed regularly. Unfortunately we do not as yet have a date as to when we will be receiving new ADHD and ASD referrals again. Please contact your local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) for information on local services available.

    Please note we remain open to local referrals from Lambeth, Lewisham, Croydon, Southwark (via A&L) and Bromley, Greenwich, Bexley (via Oxleas). We also remain open to new referrals requesting medical reviews and follow ups for patients with an established diagnosis of a genetic disorder associated with an established behavioural phenotype, for example, 22q 11 deletion syndrome.

    We continue to experience an extremely high volume of referrals which unfortunately is resulting in delays in processing. We are working as quickly as possible and appreciate your patience during this time.

    Please contact your local teams for access to talking therapies and/or mental health support as required. The Autism Act (2009), NHS Long Term Plan (2019) and other policy and best practice documents clearly state that individuals with autism and other neurodevelopmental conditions should be seen within mainstream services, with ‘reasonable adjustments’ made, wherever possible.

    Examples of helpful ‘reasonable adjustments’ for autistic individuals receiving talking therapies can be found in the National Autistic Society and MIND guide here

    A range of helpful books on offering CBT for ADHD have been published.

  4. Adult Personality Disorder Service (Croydon)


    The Croydon Adult Personality Disorder Service is a specialist multidisciplinary psychotherapy service providing psychotherapeutic treatment for people with moderate to severe personality disorder across Tiers 1-3 of the mental health services in Croydon.

    We provide consultation, assessment and treatment programme, for patients presenting with emotionally unstable personality disorder (and other associated personality difficulties). The Tier 3 day hospital service is aimed at people who have frequent service contacts, previous unsuccessful treatment of their condition and need a high level of psychiatric and psychotherapy intervention.

    To reach this patient group we in-reach to the Croydon inpatient wards to offer consultation, assessment and a pathway to accessing psychotherapeutic treatment for those it would benefit. We aim to help reduce the length of stay in hospital for those who are willing to engage in therapy. For people whose level of risk is too high for a community treatment we can complete assessments to screen for suitability for a Tier 4 personality disorder inpatient treatment.

    For these patients we work towards providing an alternative to hospital admission. We can also care co-ordinate the patients in the tier 3 service and specifically focus on supporting the safe transition between services.

    In addition, we offer tier 2 level treatments including an intensive outpatient programme and a lower intensity outpatient treatment as well as an open access community based group known as the Sun Project (tier 1).

    The Sun Project, (a self-referral, crisis and coping skills group) in central Croydon provides a service that is readily accessible to those previously excluded from psychiatric services or conventional out-patient psychotherapy.

    All tiers of our service aim to help people build a life worth living, promote recovery, improve social and interpersonal functioning, and increase the appropriate use of other statutory and voluntary sector services.

    All therapy is being delivered via Microsoft Teams at present due to safety restrictions required during the Covid 19 pandemic

  7. Anxiety Disorders Residential Unit

    We aim to offer high quality CBT aimed at reducing symptoms of anxiety disorder and improve functioning and quality of life. This would lead to reduced need for local service provision.

    The advantages of admission to a residential setting are the ability to deliver CBT in a more intensive format. Staff or residents may assist in frequent exposure or behavioural experiments in a supportive environment. There are more opportunities for modelling and positive reinforcement by others in the moment. There is increased flexibility in delivery of the therapy that can keep the momentum going. Sometimes there are advantages to removing a person from their home context.

    We integrate occupational therapy into the therapy. Living in a residential unit increases responsibility that may not occur on an inpatient unit with nursing staff as well as the support and reinforcement from other residents. Lastly the unit can monitor any medication changes or adherence.

    For patients with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), we operate at the highest level of stepped care in the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines. We do this by providing intensive CBT for the treatment of severe OCD and BDD.

    For patients with other anxiety disorders (post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social phobia, agoraphobia/panic, specific phobias, generalised anxiety disorder) the service also operates at the highest level of stepped care in the respective NICE guidelines. We do this by providing intensive CBT and optimisation of medication for the relevant anxiety disorder. The service is for those who have severe symptoms and who have failed treatment locally.

  8. Assertive Outreach Rehabilitation Team (AORT)

    The Assertive Outreach Rehabilitation Team (AORT) offers a model that utilises a whole systems approach to rehabilitation from mental illness. The tripartite model consists of two rehabilitation branches and an assertive outreach branch, utilising a shared care approach across the team with the aims of recovery and move-on at the forefront. The Assertive Outreach (AO) branch aims to provide a more enhanced service for people diagnosed with serious mental illness and to deliver evidence-based interventions and care whilst increasing service user and carer satisfaction. AO adopts an assertive and proactive way of working, utilising a whole-team approach to provide continuity of care and encourage creativity in engagement and positive risk taking. The AO multidisciplinary team provides most interventions from within the team and delivers care wherever is required and most appropriate. The rehabilitation branches aim to provide an enhanced service for service users with diagnosed serious mental health conditions that require supported or residential accommodation, embodying evidence based practice to promote rehabilitation, social inclusion and increased independence. The rehabilitation branches aim to use the FACT approach to team work, operating shared care across a proportion of the team caseload. The whole team approach embodies independence and recovery from treatment resistant mental ill health.

  15. Autism Assessment and Behavioural Genetics Service

    The Autism Assessment and Behavioural Genetics Clinic is a national, specialist service based at the Maudsley Hospital.

    Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and related disorders are lifelong neurodevelopmental conditions. However, they are often under-recognised in adults, particularly in adolescents, females and older adults.

    We pioneered the development of specialist services for assessment and treatment of ASD and other neurodevelopmental disorders in adults.

    We have over 20 years of experience in the development and delivery of diagnostics and specially adapted interventions and therapies for adults with ASD. We use gold-standard assessments and treatments in our work with patients and families. At least 50 percent of patients referred to us have undiagnosed additional mental health difficulties; the identification of these is critical to a patient's well-being.

    Our evidence-based service provides assessment and treatment for people with:

    • Suspected or diagnosed ASD, including autism and Asperger's syndrome.
    • ASD and additional mental health problems, including obsessive compulsive disorder, psychosis, depression and anxiety.
    • Suspected chromosomal abnormalities or single gene disorders, including 22q deletion and fragile X syndrome.
    • ASD and behaviour that challenges.
    • Other behavioural phenotypes of significant genetic origin.

    We offer a one-stop appointment to all outpatients who require diagnostic assessment. This includes feedback on the day, which is particularly useful for those who travel long distances.

    Our team includes internationally renowned clinicians. Our staff hold the world's biggest grant for research into autism and have won the NHS Innovation of the Year award. We use person centred approaches, helping patients to improve their coping skills and daily living abilities according to individual need. We work closely with families and local teams to support patients in their local communities.
    **We are not currently offering face to face appointments to ensure the safety of patients and staff. Appointments are being offered virtually. For patients who are unable to take part in a virtual appointment, please be assured you will remain on our waiting list until it is safe to resume face to face appointments.**
