Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust and Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust have been working in partnership since April 2022. Jointly known as The North London Mental Health Partnership, we are progressing to become one new NHS organisation by Autumn 2024.
Both rated Good by the CQC, we jointly employ 5,600 staff and care for nearly 200,000 people a year offering mental health support at home, in the community and in our hospitals.
Our services stretch from cradle to grave supporting people to overcome the hurdles they face with their health and wellbeing and ensuring they live as independently as possible.
We offer cutting-edge and person-centred mental health and wellbeing support to our service users and communities. We are committed to working with them, their carers and their partners to improve the mental health of everyone in North London. This means supporting people to be resilient and have good mental health, as well as offering early intervention for those with mental health problems to prevent these problems worsening.

Our Partnership is already making a difference with a new model of community services across our five boroughs. This entails multi-disciplinary teams, including clinicians, social workers and the voluntary sector, working together in locations close to where people live.
Our services are wide-ranging and include help for people with personality disorders, specialist perinatal support for pregnant women, help for people with eating disorders, targeted support for veterans, drug and alcohol recovery treatment, support for those with dementia or learning disabilities and suicide prevention. We also work with people who are accused of stalking, we have specialist services that work in prisons and there are services that care for people who are detained by the police under the Mental Health Act.
