Dr Adam Bagadi
Consultant Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist – MB, BSc, DPM MRCPsych FRCPsych
Dr Bagadi is Consultant in Child, Adolescent & Family Psychiatry with over 30 years experience in the NHS and private sector. Dr Bagadi offers consultations for children, young people and their families on Saturday mornings at our Garstang Rd premises, Fulwood, Preston.
Having graduated in Khartoum Medical School in 1972, he took up his first post in the UK at Maudsley & Bethlem Royal Hospitals in London in 1977, whilst training in psychiatry. In 1981, he took up post of Senior Registrar in Child, Adolescent and Family Psychiatry at Sheffield and spent 3 years training junior doctors as part of his role.
His passion for working with children, young people and families has never stopped. In 1985, he was appointed to set up the Child and Family Psychiatric Service for Trafford NHS. Over the past 30 years, he developed the service from 4 to 40 clinicians and maintained a lead role in teaching junior doctors as well as a wide range of other professionals.
Having developed skills in Behaviour Psychotherapy, Family Therapy and Psycho-dynamic Psychotherapy, his approach is one of family therapy arising from the understanding that most children’s psychological symptoms affect, and are affected by the family environment. Furthermore, as a child’s and family’s needs are varied, a multi-disciplinary approach is often required.
Dr Bagadi began a research project on Deliberate Self-harm in under 17 yr olds when in Sheffield, as well as with Manchester University and their national research projects. He is currently looking at conducting research in Post-Natal Depression and Bonding, and plans to commence a comparative study between British and Sudanese cultures in their support and treatment of children and young people in managing stress.
