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 & adolescent psychiatry, forensic psychiatry, psychiatry of people with learning disability, neuropsychiatry, substance misuse and general adult psychiatry.
In September 2009, there were 1403 members of the adolescent forensic psychiatry SIG, including 63 FRCPsych Fellows, 789 MRCPsych Members, 518 pre-membership psychiatric trainees and 24 affiliates.
