  2. Mental Health Learning Disabilities Team (Lambeth)

    The Behavioural and Developmental Psychiatry Clinical Academic Group, is committed to meeting the mental health care needs of people with a learning disability.



    1. Service Description
    The provision of Mental Health Learning Disability (MHLD) is an essential part of services provided by SLAM. MHLD teams are largely community based and support mainstream inpatient and community mental health services and social care teams to ensure the best clinical outcomes for adults with learning disabilities and mental health problems by bringing together specialist skills in psychiatry, psychology and nursing. Working within the agreed service level agreements the teams provide:

    The Mental Health in Learning Disability Service aims to provide evidence-based services to people with learning disabilities and additional health needs who are registered with General Practitioners affiliated to the Lambeth, Lewisham Croydon and Southwark Clinical Commissioning Groups.

    The Estia Centre is an education & training and research and development team that works alongside MHLD to support its functions.

    Services encapsulated under Mental Health of Learning Disabilities (MHLD) are those that respond to aspects of a person which are affected when their mental wellbeing has deteriorated into:

    • Mental illness
    • Psychological disorders (same as mainstream psychological services)
    • Significant challenging behaviour

    The trust provides specialist multidisciplinary mental health services to adults with learning disabilities who present with these difficulties and whose needs cannot be adequately met by Adult Mental Health Services (with support from MHLD). These services are delivered via partnerships with Guys & St Thomas' NHS Trust, Social Services and the four CCGs, and other agencies to enable people to remain in their local communities.

    2. Purpose
    The B&D CAG aims to ensure that high quality evidence based care is available and accessible to people with a learning disability that have mental health problems and that best possible clinical outcomes are available. We aim to develop and provide a specialist service in line with the draft service model for commissioners of health and social care services 'Supporting people with a learning disability and / or autism who have a mental health condition or display behaviour that challenges' July 2015

    Service focus:

    • To work with those with the most complex needs who need a specialist MHLD service, and doing this in partnership with the wider MDT, the person and their support network
    • Working with other services to make reasonable adjustments by sharing our expertise through consultation, training and education
    • Focus on prevention and helping people to stay well in their local community
    • Being responsive at times of crisis


    3. Responsibilities
    Within the wider trust services, the provision of mental health care for people with a learning disability who have a mental illness is a responsibility of all professionals, not the sole responsibility of specialist MHLD teams (Greenlight Toolkit GLTK).

We offer a holistic treatment programme, and encourage the involvement of fathers or partners in the process. We admit with babies where it is the wish of the mother and it is clinically safe to do so. We are also able to take mothers without their babies, and offer a programme of gradual reintroduction to the mother on the ward. We also have an inpatient parenting assessment service, providing a unique and highly specialised service to local and national authorities across the United Kingdom. We undertake assessment of women or couples and their infant, where there is potential risk or safeguarding issues arising from the parents' mental health problems.

We work closely with the Institute of Psychiatry, where there is a perinatal section headed by a world renowned expert psychiatrist, who leads many of our staff in carrying out research of international significance.

    We hold the licence for the United Kingdom Network Partnership agreement with MST Services in the USA and under this agreement can provide services across all countries of the UK and in the Republic of Ireland.

    What is Multisystemic Therapy?
    MST was developed to work with young people with complex behavioural and emotional difficulties and their families, with a focus on young people at risk of out of home placement in care or custody due to offending or other anti-social, and high risk behaviours.

    MST is provided by clinical teams of a supervisor and three or four therapists, who offer intensive family interventions in the community, for 3 -5 months, including an on-call service for families. MST is a systemic family intervention, with therapists using a range of evidence-based interventions, including structural and strategic family therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Behavioural Interventions.

    Multisystemic Therapy for Child Abuse and Neglect (MST-CAN ) is an adaptation of MST focused on families where children are on a child protection plan due to physical abuse and/or neglect and are at risk of entering care as a result. It is based on the same principles as MST, but the intervention is for 6-9 months and includes evidence-based approaches to work with adult substance abuse and also trauma in young people and adults.

    MST UK are now able to provide UK based training and consultation in both these models.

  10. National Psychosis Service - Inpatients

    The National Psychosis Service (NPS) is a clinical-academic tertiary service offering innovative individualised evidence-based multidisciplinary strategies to help those people with complex psychosis, including schizo-affective disorder, where standard treatment guidelines have proven ineffective or have not been tolerated. The service aims to enhance quality of life through tailored treatments and promotion of recovery thus reducing the need for high intensity placements and the risk of readmission.

    Internationally renowned expertise in resistant psychosis is provided by a team of dedicated clinicians offering comprehensive medical reviews alongside innovative, bespoke treatment approaches. Themes include complex co-morbid physical health conditions which directly affect psychiatric treatment options; clozapine re-challenge after a significant adverse reaction; clozapine non-response.

    Our specialist service is supported through established partnerships with the academic Departments of Psychosis Studies and Psychology based within the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London. We also liaise with clinical experts within other specialties across King’s College London and King’s Health Partners. The National Psychosis team is closely linked to the Maudsley Pharmacy and the other national specialist mental health services.

    The service aims to enhance quality of life through collaborative working towards recovery. We regularly audit and publish our service outcomes and receive excellent feedback from our patients and their families. Benefits include reduction in psychosis, less frequent episodes of illness, improved social functioning, better understanding of the illness by the patient and carers and enhanced engagement with physical and mental health care plans. We have published evidence that admissions result in reduced morbidity, fewer days spent in hospital, lower antipsychotic doses, substantial reductions in the risk of readmission or high intensity placements and less expensive long-term costs.

    As our patients may be a long way from home, we aim to make admissions as short as possible and communicate regularly with carers, the referring team and CCGs or CSUs to plan care and facilitate timely discharge.
