The National & Specialist CAMHS Trauma, Anxiety & Depression (TAD) Clinic is a Tier-4, multi-disciplinary team, working with young people and mental health practitioners across the UK and internationally.

We primarily 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. We also provide second opinion assessments for the diagnosis and treatment of complex trauma, anxiety and/or depression.

We deliver clinical training and offer clinical supervision to local teams and schools. We collaborate with the UK government and local commissioning groups to set up and manage public health initiatives related to disasters and emergencies. Clinical and training activities are informed by our research activities at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Neuroscience, King’s College London.
