Our services are developed to encourage recovery and as a result improve lives. Each patient/individual is unique as are our approaches to treating them; we deliver exceptional patient centred care at the excellent standards you would expect from an award winning provider.
Within our secure mental health hospitals we provide treatment for adults experiencing psychiatric, psychological and emotional problems within a structured and therapeutic environment including those with intellectual disability, personality disorders, challenging behaviour and other complex needs. We provide evidence-based, specialist treatment programmes for severely ill men and women who require medium or low secure environments, high dependency or intensive care and who may be at risk of suicidal behaviour, serious self-harm, violence or running away. Patients are detained under the Mental Health Act.
Within our Specialist Mental Health and Intellectual Disability Recovery services patients may be informal or detained under the Mental Health Act and clinical interventions are focused on rehabilitation. Therapeutic services are provided for men and women with; mental health disorders, intellectual disability, Autistic Spectrum Conditions including Asperger’s Syndrome, borderline personality disorder, dual diagnosed mental health and substance abuse conditions and challenging behaviour. Some patients may also have a forensic background.
Our care homes with nursing and transitional services provide patients with additional choices as they move through their pathway towards more independent living and community reintegration.
Our specialist centres provide tailored rehabilitation programmes for people with acquired brain injury and neurodisabilities, focused on reducing disability and enhancing the prospects for a more fulfilling life. We are able to accept patients detained under the Mental Health Act at our centres in Blackheath, London and Frenchay, Bristol.
Within our four hospitals we provide treatment for adolescents and young adults with eating disorders including Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder, there is also on-going development work which may see our services diversify. We take a holistic and evidence-based approach to the treatment of eating disorders, paying particular attention to biological, psychological and social factors.

Our patients are admitted on a voluntary basis, or if necessary, under the Mental Health Act.
