We are the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, a specialist mental health trust with a focus on training and education alongside a full range of mental health services and psychological therapies for children and their families, young people and adults.
The Tavistock and Portman comprises two famous clinics: The Tavistock Clinic (founded in 1920) and The Portman Clinic (founded in 1933). Both have unique histories and cultures, and though they work together as one Trust, they maintain their own individual identities and services.
Both the Tavistock and the Portman have been at the forefront of exploring mental health and wellbeing since the First World War. Our history informs our mission and our values – we work to pioneer the development and delivery of effective clinical interventions, and to be a national and international centre of excellence for training and education.
The Tavistock and Portman is a Foundation Trust. Foundation Trusts are part of the NHS and provide over half of all NHS hospital and mental health services.
