Some bed availability
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.

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 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 Linda Stanbury. She is supported by Nick Prentice-Harrison, regional director for our CAMHs services. The medical team is led by a child and adolescent consultant psychiatrist, who is supported by psychologists, an occupational therapist, a family therapist, a social worker and teachers.
