The Behavioural and Developmental Psychiatry Clinical Academic Group (CAG) incorporates clinicians and staff at South London and Maudsley and researchers at the Institute of Psychiatry. The CAG’s expertise lies in the assessment and treatment of adults with complex, challenging and difficult to manage behaviour.

The CAG brings together a mix of adult psychiatric specialities including forensic services for clients with mental illness and a history of offending, and specialist services for those with learning disabilities and neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Research activity involves the Institute of Psychiatry and a close collaboration with the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre for Mental Health.

Education and training is a priority for the CAG, with a specific staff training programme, MSc courses and overall education and training strategy agreed.
