Trust communications

The communications service is responsible for all external and internal communications for the Trust. We work closely with our partners including local councils, other NHS organisations and community and voluntary groups to make sure that information about mental and physical health services is accurate and helpful.We produce a number of publications including the annual reportCommunity and Mental Health News and quarterly Wellbeing magazine.

We are always happy to speak to the media to promote the work of the Trust and regularly send out news releases about Trust events. We will respond to all reasonable media enquiries quickly. Journalists should always approach the communications team in the first instance, as we are best placed to find you the information you need as quickly as possible. If you have submitted an FOI request you will find it quicker to contact communications in addition to making your request.

If you are working on a story and would like an interview or some clinical input, we can arrange this. We reserve the right to decline any requests which we feel impact on the effective running of the Trust, or conflict with our duty to respect patient and staff confidentiality.

Please email or call one of the team directly with any enquiries.

London Mental Health Fact Book

The London Mental Health Fact Book, produced by the Cavendish Square Group, was launched today.

What is the London Mental Health Fact Book?

The London Mental Health Fact Book is the first publication of its kind. It is designed to provide accurate information about mental health in London and has been developed by the Cavendish Square Group, a collaboration of the 10 London Trusts responsible for mental health services which includes Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust.

Who is the Fact Book for?

It is for everyone: journalists looking for authoritative information about mental health issues and trends in London; patients and carers who want to learn more about local services; and people who want to better educate themselves about mental health issues.

What information does it contain?

The London Mental Health Fact Book contains information about the world-leading mental health care and support available in London. It includes a detailed directory of the London NHS Trusts that provide mental health care, as well as information about a range of peer-support services and how to contact them. You can also find a series of articles from some of London’s leading mental health experts.
