Islington Mind was founded in 1981 and has been actively involved in the development of mental health services in Islington. We are affiliated to National Mind and work with our local statutory partners: the London Borough of Islington, Islington Clinical Commissioning Group and Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust.

Our aims are to:

  • Improve the quality of life of all Islington residents who experience mental distress or are concerned about friends and/or relatives experiencing distress.
  • Promote the preservation of mental health and the recovery of people suffering from mental health problems.
  • Provide flexible community mental health services which meet local need.
  • Encourage and actively promote service user involvement in all aspects of the delivery and development of our services.

We offer the only unrestricted access day service in the borough serving 400 service users. A service which aids recovery through active participation of service users in decisions that affect their daily life in the wider community.

We are significantly involved in the Islington Mental Health Advisory Group (MHAG), a body which oversees the commissioning priorities in mental health for the Islington Clinical Commissioning Group and monitors the implementation of the Government mental health strategy for England, No Health without Mental Health.
