Clinical Academic Groups
Clinical Academic Groups (CAGs) bring together clinical services, research, education and training to offer care and treatment, based upon reliable research evidence that it works. One of the main aims of CAGs is to help us become better and faster at using the latest research to improve the care and treatment we provide. CAGS also provide high quality teaching for the next generation of clinical staff and scientists.
King's College London, Guy's and St Thomas' and King's College Hospitals NHS Foundation Trusts work with King's Health Partners, the Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC) to support the CAGs.
The CAGs cover the following areas:
- Behavioural and Developmental Psychiatry
- Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services
- Mental Health of Older Adults Services
- Mood, Anxiety and Personality
The Child and Adolescent Mental Health CAG
CAMHS includes local and national, specialist outpatient and inpatient services (including forensic inpatient care). Community services are provided by the CAG in a range of locations including schools and GP surgeries. There are also paediatric liaison services at local acute hospital emergency departments and wards.
Research in the Academic Departments of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Clinical Psychology (and other Institute of Psychiatry Departments e.g Neuroimaging and the Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Research Centre) and the Biomedical Research Centre themes on ‘Mental disorders that start in childhood'.
