South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust
We offer the most extensive portfolio of mental health services in the United Kingdom, supported by internationally recognised training and research. Each year, 5000 people receive hospital treatment, and 32,000 receive outpatient care. We are the only mental health trust in the UK to have our own Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), which is pioneering the translation of scientific developments into new ways of screening, detecting, treating and even preventing mental illness. The BRC is managed in partnership with the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London, and funded by the National Institute for Health Research.
We are focused on promoting mental health and well-being, rather than simply responding to severe mental illness. The provision of integrated adult services enables us to address mental health and social care needs. In particular, the Trust is focusing on early intervention, getting help to people sooner in the course of illnesses such as psychosis and dementia, and in supporting people with mental health problems at an earlier stage in their lives, especially younger people.
