Service List

  1. Maudsley Centre for Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders

    The Maudsley Centre for Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders (MCCAED) is renowned worldwide for the psychological treatments it offers to children and adolescents with eating and feeding disorders.

    Our team combines a highly specialist knowledge in eating disorders with expertise in evidence-based treatments which support families to use their strengths and skills to support their child overcome an eating disorder.

    Our services:

    The Eating Disorders Clinic
    The Eating Disorders Clinic serves children and teens who live locally, and are registered to a GP in Bexley, Bromley, Croydon, Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham or Southwark. It offers treatment for all eating disorders except ARFID and feeding disorders, which are treated in our other clinics.

    Our outpatient service is accessible and responsive. If you think you need help you can simply make a self-referral , or if you are a family member you can refer a loved one . If you are a professional (e.g. school nurse or GP) please refer here . You can also call us during our office hours (Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm) on 020 3228 2545.

    We aim to see all routine referrals within 28 days, urgent referrals within 7 days, and emergency referrals within 24 hours. If in doubt, please do not hesitate to refer.

    Intensive Treatment Programme:
    The Intensive Treatment Programme (ITP) is a day programme for young people who are already in treatment for an eating disorder, but need a bit of extra support.

    At ITP, we see under 18s living in England who have an eating disorder and feel like their treatment is not progressing despite everyone's best efforts. ITP is a day programme so young people and family members need to be able to commute daily to ITP.

    If you have not been treated for an eating disorder before, we always suggest contacting your local specialist service before even thinking about ITP. For most people, this is more than enough.

    If you are already in treatment and still feel that you need more support, ITP might be for you. Just ask your practitioner to get in touch with us.

    The ARFID Clinic
    Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, or ARFID, is very different from anorexia nervosa and other eating disorders. The ARFID and Related Disorders Clinic offers targeted treatment for ARFID and other feeding disorders. We provide detailed assessments and specialised therapy for children and teens with various avoidant or restrictive eating behaviours.

    We know that different people struggle with their food intake for different reasons. At the ARFID clinic, we pay close attention to your individual situation, so that we can carefully select the treatments that will be most effective for you.

  6. 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

    We specialise in the treatment of antenatal and postnatal illnesses. Our service is for women who develop a mental illness or have a relapse of serious mental illness during pregnancy, and women who have developed postnatal depression, post partum psychosis or have had a relapse of serious mental illness following the birth of their baby.

    We support the mother in developing a relationship with her infant in order to reduce the impact of the mother's illness on the child. 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.

    Our team is committed to providing cost-effective, evidence based treatments that reduce risk, establish a relationship between mother and baby, and prepares them for a lasting return to the community. 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.
