Mental Health

Mental health services in Enfield are provided by the Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health Trust.

Community mental health teams provide support to adults between 18 and 65 with a range of problems, including schizophrenia or other complex mental health difficulties. The dementia and cognitive impairment service also aims to help older people.

Where to go for help

You can find information on improving your mental health and wellbeing by visiting Healthy Enfield and NHS.

You can also get help from your doctor. Don't feel worried about going, as they are there to help with your mental health as well as your physical health. They may refer you to a local organisation that can help, or provide you with medication if they agree it is the best option.

You can also ask your doctor for talking therapy, such as counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), psychiatry, or family, couples and group therapy.

More serious mental health problems require specialist health and social care, and you may be referred to local mental health services.
