We provide an Outreach and Screen service for adults whose mental health or emotional wellbeing has been affected by the 2019 Fishmongers' Hall (London Bridge) terror attack.
Terror attacks can be traumatic for all those involved and can have a lasting psychological impact.
Although people respond to trauma differently, common reactions include:
feelings of fear, anger, shame and guilt
unwanted distressing thoughts or memories of the incident
loss of interest in hobbies and pleasurable activities
These reactions are normal and usually improve in the days and weeks following the trauma.
However, for some people, these feeling persist and affect their mental wellbeing and functioning.
The Outreach and Screen Service is provided by a team of specialist psychologists who have helped people affected by terror attacks in Tunisia, Paris, Brussels and London. Watch this video to find out more about the service:
Address: Psychological Trauma Outreach, Screen and Support Service for London Terrorist Incidents, Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma, South London and Maudsley NHS Trust, 99 Denmark Hill, London, SE5 8AZ
Service opening times are Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
If you want support with your mental health but you were not directly affected by the 2019 London Bridge terror attack please contact your GP or visit the NHS website.
After a major incident, a coroner’s inquest is commonly held. Inquests can cause additional distress to those affected by the incident. Please see our information for suggestions for coping and further resources for support around an inquest.
