Care and education treatments reviews (CETRs)

Care treatment reviews (CTRs) or care and education treatment reviews (CETRs for children and young people) are for people with learning disabilities, autism or both.

They are for people living in the community and in learning disability or mental health hospitals. CETRs/CTRs help to improve care for people whose behaviour is seen as challenging and/or for people with a mental health condition. The aim of a CETR/CTR is to support people with learning disabilities or autism to live as independently as possible and to remain living in the  community where this is appropriate.

Every child that is admitted to a mental health hospital with a diagnosis of learning disability or autism should receive a CETR. Community CETRs are held when a young person is at risk of admission to hospital and can be called by any professionals working with the individual and their family. The young person and their family is at the centre of the meeting and their thoughts, feelings and views are essential to the process. A CETR/CTR cannot be convened without your consent.
