We are a team of professionals covering North Somerset, based at Drove Road Child Development Centre (CDC) in Weston-super-Mare. We also work from The Barn in Clevedon. This service is run by Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership (AWP).
The Children's Learning Disabilities Team is part of the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) and exists to promote the psychological health of the children and young people living in and around the area. We provide a range of services including multi-disciplinary assessment to children and young people with moderate to severe learning disabilities, who experience mental health problems, including challenging behaviour. The team provides advice and support to the professional network around these children.
