Enablement: Helping people Live, Love and Do

The Trust Wide Enablement Partnership between Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust (BEH) and peer-led charity Inclusion Barnet seeks to build lasting cultural change within the Trust so that enablement becomes an integral part of the culture.

What is enablement?

Enablement is an approach to delivering mental health services which focusses on empowering people take control of their own mental health.

What are the features of an enabling service?

Enabling services empower people by:

  • always aiming to do with people rather than to or for people;
  • focusing on what people can do rather than what they cannot do;
  • supporting people to develop skills to help themselves stay well; and
  • working with the whole person, including their family and friends.

The video below gives one view of what enablement is and the difference it can make.
