Our Crewe Learning Disability Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) is a community based, specialist service offering support to children, young people and families/carers in Central Cheshire.
We currently offer the ‘Signposts for Building Better Behaviour’ programme ages 3-16.
We provide functional assessments which may involve interviewing parents/carers, observing the young person directly at home or at school, and asking parents and/or teachers to complete recording forms.

This CAMHS service is available to anyone aged 0-18 at the time of referral.
Young people between 0-18 years of age with a diagnosis of a Severe Learning Disability and behaviours which are challenging can be referred to us by a professional (such as a GP or teacher).
