Funded by a Knowledge Transfer Partnership grant, the project will help position Cerebra as a leader in mental health support for children and young people with brain conditions where co-occurring psychiatric conditions –including mood disorders, anxiety and psychotic episodes – are widespread and often poorly managed.
The partnership aims to exploit Cardiff’s world-leading research in genetics, psychiatry and brain development in order to revolutionise Third Sector support for children with severe learning and developmental challenges.
We believe much more can be done to improve mental health care and support for children with rare disorders, their families, service providers and wider communities. Through this project we hope to develop innovative interdisciplinary partnerships between services.
