As the leading independent mental health organisation in Islington we offer high-quality services to local residents seeking mental health advice and support. Our website provides details of our organisation and the services we provide.
Our response to Coronavirus/COVID-19
Islington Mind takes the health and wellbeing of our service users and staff as our top priority.
Although our community and face-to-face services are suspended, we are all working 9:00-5:00 remotely to support our service users during these uncertain and challenging times.
If you are a regular Islington Mind service user, you have been or will be contacted by one of our staff team and be offered regular remote support.
If you haven’t been contacted or would like to speak to us – please contact us during opening times, using our telephone numbers (and/or email addresses) which are all now diverted to our teams.
We are maintaining a comprehensive list of available local resources:
As part of our Covid-19 support, we now offer virtual drop-in sessions – a get-together space where you can socialise in a virtual therapeutic environment supported by our staff team.
We currently offer:
Outcome – an LGBTQ+ drop-in (Women only Tuesdays 12:00-1:00; general drop-in Tuesdays 2:00-4:00; Asylum seekers and Refugees Wednesdays 12:00-1:00)
Mental Health Recovery Pathway drop-in sessions on Mondays and Thursdays 2:00-4:00.
Please ask a member of staff for an invitation if you are already an Islington Mind client. If not – please feel free to refer yourself via our website.
We will assess and update our website on a regular basis.
Outcome shortlisted at British Diversity Awards
We are very pleased to say that our client-led LGBTQ+ service has been shortlisted for Charity or Non-Profit Organisation of the Year at the British Diversity Awards.
The British Diversity Awards promote the values of equality, diversity and inclusion by rewarding those individuals, organisations and unsung heroes who help to make the world and the workplace a better place for others.
Outcome is one of eight nominees shortlisted for the Charity or Non-Profit Organisation of the Year award for 2019. The winner will be announced when the situation is more stable and will automatically be shortlisted for the European Diversity Awards.
Islington Mind’s Mental Health Recovery Pathway (MHRP) is our new mental health provision based across three sites in Islington.
The MHRP is designed to respond to the needs of Islington residents with a wide spectrum of ongoing mental health problems.
RainbowSports@Mind is a new project for LGBTQ+ people across London that aims to reduce isolation and improve physical movement. This new programme hosts a safe, supportive mental health focused environment as part of our LGBTQ+ service, Outcome, alongside providing accessible activities, such as dance, walking groups, football, boxing, and cricket. We also offer low-impact activities, such as QiGong, Yoga, and Stretch and Sing. RainbowSports encourages people to get together and work collectively towards goals of improved mental health, whilst having fun and getting moving.
COVID-19 – Your Support

Or if you want your donation to go directly to our service users – you can buy an Amazon gift card and email the gift card code back to us, or phone and read it to us. The code will be forwarded directly to our service users who are most in need.
