Our locked rehabilitation services have been designed for men (with separate provision for women) of working age, whose complex mental health needs and risk factors require treatment in a secure hospital ward. As they move along their journey towards integration with the community inpatients participate in a range of activities, both within the hospital and in the community, to develop their independent living skills. We aim to deliver care in a manner which respects our clients as individuals, values their positive attributes and diversity, and supports them as partners as they take increasing control over their own journey of recovery.
All of our patients undergo a rigorous psychological assessment to evaluate risk to themselves and others and to enable us to safely incorporate positive risk-taking into their robust rehabilitation plan. Our aim is to make people’s stay with us their last, so in addition to their clinical treatment we work with them to practice relapse prevention techniques and to develop their coping strategies.
