West London Mental Health Trust (WLMHT) is one of the most diverse providers of NHS mental health and community services in the UK. We provide care and treatment for around 62,570 people each year.
We offer care, treatment and support for a range of conditions or illnesses affecting people’s psychological wellbeing. In some boroughs, we also provide services to improve general physical wellbeing and to prevent unnecessary stays in hospital.
In some cases, our services will be for people whose rights are restricted under the Mental Health Act 1983 – either by being detained in hospital or through being on a community treatment or guardianship order.
One in four of us will experience a mental health condition at some point in our lives. Our job is to help people to recover and manage their symptoms so they can get on with living their life.
We employ around 3,560 staff and serve a local population of around 700,000 people.

We provide both mental health inpatient care and treatment in the community in the London boroughs of Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham and Hounslow.
We also provide a child and adolescent mental health service for the London Borough of Brent.
In Ealing and Hammersmith & Fulham we provide an intermediate care service, and we also run a healthy lifestyles programme called One You Ealing.
As well as community and inpatient mental health services, we are a leading national provider of forensic (secure) and specialist mental healthcare.
