  • Medium secure mental illness and personality disorder service for women
  • Medium secure learning disability service for men

Our approach

The treatment programmes at Calverton Hill aim to optimise patient recovery and potential by treating and minimising risk behaviours and by enabling them to develop psychological/emotional, social and occupational skills and resilience.

All interventions aim to help the patient to understand the effect of their behaviour on others, to help them to manage the impact of external triggers on their behaviour and ultimately to promote the concept of recovery and include:

  • Dialectical behaviour therapy
  • Mental health awareness group
  • Individual and group psychological therapy
  • Recovery and mental health awareness
  • Managing anger programme (MAP)
  • Drug and alcohol programme
  • Relationship programme (social skills)
  • Coping skills programme
  • Problem solving therapy

Our structured approach to care explicitly acknowledges and supports the issue of change (or readiness for change) and is essential for successful engagement and treatment. The treatment is led by our expert therapy team, which includes:

  • Psychologists
  • Occupational therapists
  • Psychiatrists
  • Nursing team
  • Social workers
