SLaM releases new directory of child and adolescent mental health services

South London And Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust : 21 September, 2010  (Company News)
The South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) publishes its new directory of child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) for 2010-11.
The directory is available to children and young people across the United Kingdom.

The comprehensive directory provides health professionals with information about the CAMHS services SLaM offers, who is eligible for them, the type of treatments provided, and the expected outcomes. All national individual care options are listed, as are the costs.

Director of the CAMHS service, Paul Calaminus said, “We hope health professionals find our directory of national CAMHS services useful, and we look forward to working together to help to improve the lives of young people who need specialist mental health services.”

SLaM’s child and adolescent national and specialist service includes a range of outpatient clinics and four inpatient units, located at the Maudsley Hospital in Camberwell, and the Bethlem Royal Hospital in Beckenham. The services are renowned nationally and internationally, with clinical practice that thrives on links with the Institute of Psychiatry and the Medical Research Council Child Psychiatry Unit.

“Our clinical teams are fully committed to multi-disciplinary, comprehensive assessments of young people within their family and social context, taking into account their academic achievements and potential,” Dr Gordana Milavic, CAHMS Clinical Director said. “We are active in clinical research; developing, assessing and implementing effective new treatments like multi-family groups for eating disorders and computer-delivered treatments for depression.”

Child and adolescent health workers can also access information about SLaM’s CAMHS services through a new website that includes a secure online referral system.

The website, aimed at health professionals and commissioners, features profiles of our experts, comprehensive information to help navigate SLaM service, along with the ability to refer patients online. The website is regularly updated with news and blog posts, and also features a number of case studies profiling the experiences of former SLaM patients, and carers.

Paul Calaminus said the new website and directories had made the process of making a referral simple and time-saving for health professionals.

“The directories and website include named contacts, phone and fax numbers, and emails of the people you need to get in touch with in each service. They will be very happy to help with enquiries and referrals,” said Calaminus.
