New consultation service for children with FASDPosted in: News
Dr Raja Mukherjee runs our first FASD clinic for families in treatment at Family Futures
We’re very pleased to be pioneering a Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) consultation & advice service for families in treatment here, in collaboration with Surrey & Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. FASD is a ‘hidden epidemic’ affecting at least 2 out of every 100 people in the UK and around three quarters of looked after children are thought to be at risk. More awareness and support is needed for those suffering from the lifelong brain damage and symptoms of FASD, often currently misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all. Our new consultation service is run by Dr Raja Mukherjee, a consultant psychiatrist and internationally acclaimed expert in FASD.
