A new community survey has just been launched as part of South London Listens to help find the solutions to the impact Covid-19 has had on the mental health of our communities.
We continue to see patients at all our sites, as well as in their homes, and have a number of measures in place to ensure our sites are Covid secure, including the wearing of face masks and coverings, deep cleaning, one-way signage and cleaning stations.

In July, our Trust received over £13,000 in public support when the family of a former patient launched a remarkable fundraising campaign for the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services Aquarius Ward at Springfield Hospital.
Sophie, who sadly passed away in May 2016, spent time at Aquarius Ward had admired the “remarkable dedication and care of the staff” that had looked after her. Sophie’s family wanted to honour her wishes by supporting the Trust’s Charity to help other young people going through the same experiences.
Chief Executive David Bradley said “We are humbled that Sophie’s family chose to honour her memory in this way. The outpouring of support from the public is a testament to her life as well as the hard working staff we have on the ward. These donations will help make life better for patients and ensure we can continue helping to improve people’s lives.”

Tim Tolcher cycled 220 miles in 24 hours with no stops from London to Ilfracombe on 7th July 2016 with no training. He started this ambitious trek in order to fundraise in memory of Sophie Bennett, a dear family friend (see above). All the funds raised will go straight to the Trust charity. Tim has so far raised over £3,000. You can still donate to Tim's fundraiser here.
In June a team from the Trust joined in the London Nightrider Challenge to raise money for the Trust’s Charity.
This was a 100km route around London during the night starting at the Leo Valley VeloPark. The route took in as many sights as possible including Piccadilly circus, Trafalgar Square, Houses of Parliament, Little Venice, Albert Hall, the London Eye and the O2.
Overall the night riders raised a fantastic £1 million. You can show your support here - Donate Now

The staff and patients of Phoenix ward have had their days brightened by a recent project which saw a team of artists install some of their latest works in the ward.
Each artist was allocated a space or room and worked closely with the unit’s residents, clinicians, consultants and occupational therapists to develop their installation. The effect was that each room was decorated in its own unique style. Before the project each room looked largely the same, now each is different.
Although the Phoenix Unit is not open to the public the response of the staff and patients has been very positive. According to one resident: "I think the new design is changing the way we all live our lives on the ward. The art has given us all a new way to start conversations with each other and things already seem so much better."
