The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust is a specialist mental health trust based at the Tavistock Clinic in Swiss Cottage. It was founded in 1920.

In 1994 the Tavistock Clinic joined with the Portman Clinic to become the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust. In 2006 the Trust acquired Foundation Trust status and become the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust.

The Trust provides clinical services for children and families, young people and adults. It also provides multi-disciplinary training and education. These programmes include core professional training, for example in psychiatry, psychology, social work and advanced psychotherapy training, as well as applied programmes for anyone working in the mental health or social care workforce.

The Child and Adolescent Psychotherapists working in New Rush Hall School are trained and employed by the Tavistock Clinic, who also provide training to all staff to help them develop their understanding of the emotional factors which affect behaviour.
