Treatment, interventions and support

While you are with us you will receive one-to-one support to develop your own care plan, which will be used to facilitate your recovery and safe discharge.

This can include:

  • A meaningful programme of ward-based activities, coordinated by our occupational therapy team.
  • Psychological therapy on a one-to-one basis, with a qualified psychologist
  • Additional support with housing benefits and social inclusion
  • Full physical health screening, frequent reviews and follow up treatment 
  • Access to electro convulsive therapy (ECT)

During your stay we may prescribe and administer medication; and we will endeavour to involve you in this process.

We maintain close contact with community mental health services to ensure continuity of your care. 

We also welcome involvement from your family and carers.

Our aim is to deliver care and treatment in line with Pennine Care’s values, those are:
