About us

Formed in November 2002, the genesis of this SIG marked an increasing interest in the mental health of children and adolescents who pose a risk to themselves or others.

This group of young people have mental health needs that are relevant to a broad range of psychiatric disciplines including child and adolescent psychiatry, forensic psychiatry, psychiatry of people with learning disabilities, neuropsychiatry, substance misuse and general adult psychiatry.
