Child & Adolescent Trauma, Anxiety and Depression Clinic

< Back to directory


This service is for children and adolescents with difficulties arising from exposure to traumatic and severely stressful events.

They offer assessment and treatment to children and adolescents who experience severe and/or treatment-resistant post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety disorders and unipolar depression. They also provide second opinion assessments for the diagnosis and treatment of complex trauma, anxiety and/or depression.

They deliver clinical training and offer clinical supervision to local teams and schools. They collaborate with the UK government and local commissioning groups to set up and manage public health initiatives related to disasters and emergencies.

They lead in research on ways of improving and disseminating evidence-based treatments for traumatised young people and their families. People seen in their clinics are often invited to participate in ongoing research projects.

They also provide training in the assessment and treatment of post-traumatic responses in young people and families.

This is a specialist service, available to people from across the UK. GPs, consultants, health professionals, referrers, commissioners and members of the public can find comprehensive information about this national service here:  For more information about SLaM’s national and specialist services see:
