Horizon Unit - In-Patient Service

We provide mental health treatment and support to young people aged between 13 and 18 years old who live anywhere in the UK.

Our unit has 10 beds to care for severe or enduring mental health difficulties, including if you require high dependency care.

We’re led by an expert team of healthcare professionals which is made up of psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, occupational therapists, dieticians and teachers.

We also have some family ambassadors who can support parents and carers.

We work closely with the nearby Hope Unit to provide assessment and treatment for both acute and complex needs.

The units have been designed with you in mind and have recently been refurbished to ensure that they are of the highest standard.

You can be referred to our service through our CAMHS (child and adolescent mental health service) community teams.

Young people have created some advice about what life is like on Hope and Horizon.

You are always welcome to visit your loved ones on the unit, please contact us before to arrange this.

We will try to be as flexible and accommodating as possible but ask that you please try to avoid visits during college hours and mealtimes, as this forms part of the therapeutic day. The best times to visit are evenings and weekends.
