Service user involvement and experts experience

Service users and carers of the mental health in learning disabilities (MHLD) clinical services are encouraged and supported to join our involvement register and get involved in paid opportunities to shape and deliver services. See our Get involved pages.

Service user and carer group

The nursing team in the MHLD clinical service run a monthly service user and carer 'meet up' group. The group do lots of different activities including bowling, karaoke, and sports days. Contact Pamela Boothe (Lambeth Team Administrator) on 020 3228 1057 for details.

Gardening group

The therapeutic value of gardening is a hot topic at the moment see Tweets by ‎@MaudsleyNHS.

You can also follow this link for interesting information on the benefits.

If service users might be interested in joining the service user allotment group at Ruskin Park please forward their names or feel free to ask any questions helena.cook@slam.nhs.uk.

Reasonably adjusted project

The Estia Centre was awarded a grant from Health Education England to develop a co-produced resource for mental health staff about meeting the needs for people with an intellectual disability. We have employed an expert by experience to undertake this project with us.

Mind Apples

Due to Covid-19 we have been unable to hold our weekly Mind Apples group on a Monday in person. We are now holding online virtual group meetings.

Mind Apples social networking group for people with learning disabilities is a place where we can: 

  • talk about how we feel
  • talk about what is happening
  • learn things together

If you are interested, please call Ruwani 07799 537 312. Download the Mind Apples leaflet.
