We are a small multi-disciplinary/multi agency team which assesses and supports the psychological, emotional and mental health needs of young people with complex needs. This is up to 25 years if they have an EHC plan.
These complex needs can lead to challenging behaviour. This can be caused by mental health diagnosis, severe learning difficulties, autism, conduct disorders, anxiety and mood disorders and other conditions. Many of the young people we work with have a combination of these difficulties which often makes it difficult for them to remain at home and in non-residential school placements.
We therefore also have a role in helping to find suitable alternative school/residential placements for them. We continue to monitor and support their care even when they are not in Camden.
