Adult mental health support from community organisations

Many of us will experience some form of mental ill-health in our lives.

If you are experiencing depression, anxiety or other forms of mental distress it is important to get help as soon as possible. The sooner help is given, the sooner recovery can begin. 

Please see our help in a crisis page if you or someone you know is in crisis.

For less urgent issues, there is a lot we can do to improve our mental health and wellbeing – please see our mental health and wellbeing page.

Underpinned by the IPS model, the service aims to get more than 30% of clients engaging in the service into employment and has had great success in recent years, during the pandemic and with some of Haringey’s most disadvantaged communities.
