We assess children and youth aged from birth to 25 years who have complex psychiatric and medical presentations.
What we do
The Neurodevelopmental stream is a 0-25 year service incorporating neuropsychiatry, developmental assessment and management service, and Mental Health Intellectual Disability – Youth (MHIDI-Y) Initiative. This team specialises in the overlap between psychiatry, neurology, medicine and disability. The team provides multidisciplinary assessment and case management for children and young people with delays and impairments in several areas of development with additional emotional, social and behavioural problems.
The neurodevelopmental team seeks to support families of children and young people and to prevent secondary psychiatric impairment by means of early detection and management of dual disabilities.
MHIDI-Y which sits within the Neurodevelopmental Stream will address a critical service gap by providing a specialist, community-based mental health assessment and treatment service for people with an intellectual disability and severe mental illness.
