The PICT team consists of group of psychologists employed by Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust. We work with different teams and systems, both within and outside of healthcare, to support them in working effectively with people who use their services who have complex needs, including personality disorder.
Our aim is to improve the journey of service users with high need, high complexity and where treatment as usual is not working by enhancing existing capacities of the system to provide effective care. This is provided through psychologically informed consultation and training as an external practitioner working into teams.
All of the PICT psychologists also work as clinicians within the Camden and Islington Personality Disorder Service. This means that they have up to date theoretical and clinical experience and skills of working effectively with this client group. In addition, they have a good understanding of the mental health services that are available within the boroughs.
