Some bed availability

Meadow Lodge

Our new service for young people in the South West is now open.   This service is for young people, both male and female, aged 12 - 18 with mental health problems.   The conditions we cover include mood disorders, emerging personality disorder, self-harm, bipolar disorder, psychosis and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).  We have 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 are 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're a small hospital, just 10 beds, but we have worked hard to make sure we have created 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.

Care at Meadow Lodge

General CAMHS service

This service is 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.

Our General CAMHS unit has 8 bedrooms.

High Dependency service

There are two high dependency beds available for those young people who need a little bit more 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 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.
