On World Mental Health Day Londoners need to know support is available

London Mental Health Pie

With the NHS Mental Health services in Crisis where can stress, depressed or anxious Londoners turn?


A recent report [1]revealed that 80% of NHS mental health services fear they cannot provide timely, high-quality care to the growing numbers seeking help.

“Meanwhile, 80% (of NHS providers) said the extra funding meant for mental health at a national level is not making it to the local frontline services.”[2]

Today with a quarter of Londoner’s having a recognised mental health condition and that number appearing to be  growing year on year across all age groups.[3] It’s clear that the need for support tailored to the needs of those with mental health problems has never been greater in London.

And yet Twining Enterprise’s new personalised employment support is has free spaces available across North West London.

 “Twining changes the lives of thousands of Londoners every year and we have the opportunity to reach many more over the coming years.” Oliver Jacobs, Interim Chief Executive

Twining Enterprise currently have fully trained Employment Specialists available in Barnet, Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon and Hounslow ready to take on clients with mental health issues who are motivated to return to work but need support with this transition. Our support can continue even once a client has returned to work because we recognise that the switch back into a work regime can create extra stress that can impact on mental health and wellbeing.

Many of our staff have lived or close family experience of mental health conditions and are ready and waiting to support people through their personal career journey.

If you think that you might benefit from some extra support in your job search and have a common mental health condition such as depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD or something more severe our expert team are here to help you.
