About Us

The Brent Centre for Young People is the leading mental health charity for young people in North West London, supporting over 700 young people a year with a wide range of issues. We offer specialised treatment in the areas of suicide prevention, tackling self-harm, eating disorders, exam anxiety and more.

Set up 50 years ago to focus on preventing suicide amongst adolescents, and working in the heart of the community, in response to demand we expanded into schools in the 1990s, and work closely with the NHS and CAMHS to treat a wide range of young people to this day.

As well as one-to-one support, we offer a range of innovative and effective projects. These include our Youth Offending Service project, Sport and Thought - football-based therapy, as well as Family Therapy, parenting support and practical support for young people with housing issues, those at risk of exclusion, or those not in education, employment or training.
