What's the deal with...
Learning Disability Service (CAMHS) Waveney

 What help do you offer?

​At Learning Disability (CAMHS) we offer a specialist service for children and young people up to 18 with a diagnosis of learning disability, emotional, behavioural or mental health issues, if you are living in the Waveney District catchment area and registered with a Suffolk GP

 How do I get help from your service?

​We accept referrals from GPs, schools, health visitors and all agencies involved with young people and their families.

 What hours is your service available?



Outside of working hours you can leave a message on our answerphone. We aim to respond to all messages the next working day.

 What can I expect from you?

​We talk to you and your family to find out about you and how we can help. We may provide individual support which could include play based or talking therapies. If you need medication  we can help support your concerns. We also offer therapeutic support for families.

We aim to be accessible, often seeing you at home or school, unless our clinic is more appropriate. We allow plenty of time for children and young people who may find it difficult to engage with others. We are committed to being focused on children and young people.
