Braeburn House is a purpose built, modern, 28 bedded male, mental health rehabilitation and recovery service in the heart of Salford, Greater Manchester. The unit comprises of three wards:
- Buile Hill Ward is a 9 bed facility
- Light Oaks Ward is a 13 bed facility
- The Crescent is a 6 bed step down facility
The service is being provided by Greater Manchester West Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust and the Priory Group.
We accept males over 18 years of age who suffer from a primary diagnosis of mental illness and have already progressed in their journeys of recovery but still require further support and intensive interventions to develop the necessary coping strategies and skills to manage a more independent life within a more community-based setting. We support individuals who are detained under the Mental Health Act.
The staff who work at Braeburn House have many years of NHS experience in this area of mental health. Care will be delivered by a multi-disciplinary team, who will:
- Improve our service users understanding of their mental health, behaviour and their interactions with others
- Help service users build up effective therapeutic relationships and help them manage psychological distress and risk
- Help service users achieve a stable sense of self and enhance their management of their emotions and problem solving
- Develop service users skills in the three core areas of self care, leisure and productivity
- Enable service users to confidently access and re-engage within the local community
The service employs NHS consultant psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, assistant practitioners, clinical pathway workers and senior managers. Other team members include members of the senior management team for the unit, occupational therapist, occupational therapy assistants, gym instructors, registered mental health nurses, support workers, administrators, domestic and maintenance services, catering and hospitalities staff. The multi-disciplinary team work together under the guidance of the Care Programme Approach (CPA) to support service users along their journey of recovery.
