Time to talk about mental health

This week, Camden and Islington residents are being asked to take five minutes to talk to friends, neighbours or colleagues to find out how they are doing. 'Time To Talk Day', Thursday 5 February, is a national campaign aimed at tackling the stigma around mental health and we're supporting the initiative.

Publication scheme

In order to comply with the FOI Act public sector organisations such as ours have to routinely publish information whenever possible. The Information Commissioner's Office, who is responsible for monitoring and enforcing compliance to the FOI Act has drawn up what is called a Model Publication Scheme for all public sector organisations which we have formally committed to and decided to adopt.

Freedom of information

Under The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOI Act) you have the right to request access to non-personal information held by Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust. 

FOI has been introduced with the aim of increasing openness and transparency; however, there are some circumstances when information cannot be disclosed.

Stacey Street team awarded £100 for PET study

Dr Fiona Nolan, Deputy Director of Nursing and Research, is Chief Investigator on the Protected Engagement Time (PET) for Older People study. The study looks at how PET is implemented on older people's wards throughout England, and whether it benefits patients, staff and carers.

Smoking and nicotine dependence

Studies suggest that up to 70% of mental health service user’s smoke, and commonly smoke heavily (20 or more a day). Many will have smoked for years, and will have tried their best to quit many times. But research also shows that mental health service users are keen to be offered help to quit and can see benefits (see below) to their health and wellbeing if they do. Mental health service users who smoke are not alone, and help is available to them to become ex-smokers.

Equality, diversity and human rights

Tackling health inequalities and social exclusion is an important priority for C&I. We are committed to taking positive steps to ensure fair and equitable access to services for all.

As a major provider of services, we need to be pro-active so that we can meet the changing needs of diverse communities, and provide fair access for all in an environment where dignity, equality, diversity and human rights are respected and promoted.
