Your local mental health trust is hosting their third annual open day on Sunday 13 September at St Pancras Gardens between 11am – 4pm. Tariq Knight, who starred on BBC 1’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, will be conjuring up some magic and we'll have a bouncy castle, archery, face painting, Bollywood dance workshops, a live band and much more. Don't forget to join us!
Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust along will all the other mental health Trusts in London have developed a Mental Health Fact Book.
It 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.
Our iCope team - who provide psychological treatments and therapies for people with mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression - have been shortlisted for Innovation in Mental Health and Primary Care in The National Positive Practice in Mental Health Awards 2015.
C&I has moved the service we normally offer in emergency departments to our 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service, at St Pancras Hospital. The service will see people in need of urgent care so that they do not have to go to a hospital emergency department unless they have an urgent medical need. Emergency departments are under unprecedented pressure due to COVID-19 – the illness caused by coronavirus. We are urging people in mental health crisis to telephone our 24/7 crisis line on 0800 917 3333 or contact their usual community mental health team. If service users attend the 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service in person we will see you but we urge you to contact the crisis line in advance for advice to ensure you are only leaving home when absolutely necessary.
