Some bed availability
We hope to open our new service in the South West very soon. This service will be for young people, both male and female, aged 12 - 18 with mental health problems. The conditions we cover will include mood disorders, emerging personality disorder, self-harm, bipolar disorder, psychosis and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). There will be an on-site school with qualified teaching staff to support young people continue their education whilst staying with us.
Working together with NHS England we will be offering an inpatient mental health service that will benefit young people living in the South West region.
Our aim is to offer teenagers and their families in the South West hope, and to bring positive change into their lives.
We'll be a small hospital, just 10 beds, but we are working hard at the moment to make sure we create a welcoming, homely atmosphere. We’re in a lovely former country house in Newton Abbot. While you’re here, you will be able to continue your education. And we will constantly monitor your treatment to make sure we’re always doing our best for you.

This service will be for young people who have long-standing, complex mental health issues to deal with. These young people need some time in a safe environment with a team experienced in a broad range of mental health conditions to work through their problems.
We are experts in the field of adolescent mental illness and our specialist teams throughout the country have dedicated their working lives to improving the life chances of troubled young people.
Our General CAMHS unit will have 8 bedrooms.
There will be two high dependency beds available for those young people who need a little bit more support.
Advice and Support
There will be plenty of opportunities for our young people to bring their own personal touches to day to day life here at Meadow Lodge. We will encourage our patients to be as independent as possible and for families to be actively involved in helping us set the right goals for their loved one each step of the way.
The hospital manager is Valentine Mwerenga. He is supported by Beaulah Nyatoro, regional director for our CAMHs services. The medical team will be led by a child and adolescent consultant psychiatrist, who will be supported by psychologists, an occupational therapist, a family therapist, a social worker and teachers. We are currently looking for exceptional people to join our team at Meadow Lodge. Please look at our current job vacancies on our Work with Us page for more details.
