We look after people’s mental and physical health in our hospitals or in the community.

We provide a range of mental health services for young people and adults. These include enabling our patients to overcome phobias and anxiety, or to come to terms with bereavement or teenage pregnancy. We also have expert staff helping people deal with bipolar, schizophrenia or the onset of dementia.

In Enfield we provide a full range of child and adult community health services, which we are busy integrating with our mental health services. This means, for example, that we can treat someone’s diabetes and their mental health at the same time providing a better, more holistic level of care.

We have a renowned North London Forensic Service (NLFS), rated as ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission. This service, based in Enfield, cares for and treats people in low and medium secure environments.

The NLFS is the provider of the National Stalking Clinic, and in partnership with the Metropolitan Police jointly deliver the Fixated Threat Assessment Centre (FTAC). This service provides risk assessment and management for the member of the Royal Family and Government who are receiving undue attention from people who have mental health issues. NLFS also started a service with the Metropolitan Police and the Suzy Lamplugh Trust called the Stalking Threat Assessment Centre (STAC).  STAC, in contrast to FTAC, helps victims and perpetrators of stalking who are ordinary members of the public.  In addition, NLFS delivers mental health care in HMP Brixton, HMP Pentonville and HMP Wormwood Scrubs in London and HMP Grendon and HMP Springhill in Buckinghamshire. NLFS also provides mental health services at HM Young Offenders Institutions at Aylesbury and Feltham.

As a Trust we also provide one of the largest eating disorders services in England, featured in a highly-acclaimed Louis Theroux BBC2 documentary, as well as drug and alcohol services, and psychiatric liaison.

In 2014 we were awarded 'University Affiliated’ by Middlesex University. The 'University Affiliated’ status facilitate stronger working relations, including the opportunity for experienced academics at Middlesex and experienced clinicians within the Trust to co-produce mental health education and research projects which meet the needs of local people. This agreement will enhance the current partnership between the two organisations, demonstrating a strong commitment to education, research and development.
