Calverton Hill

Calverton Hill provides care and treatment within a medium secure environment for men and women aged 18 years and older, with learning disabilities and women with mental illnesses and/or personality disorders. This is a purpose built facility that consists of:

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

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. These include:

  • Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT)
  • 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

More Info

We provide real work opportunities (RWOs) which aim to identify job-specific skills, strengths and experience, develop job-acquisition skills, take on an in-house RWO, give appraisals and reviews, and identify roles and employment opportunities outside the hospital setting.

Patients are supported to develop a CV, complete an application form and attend an interview.

The aim of the RWO programme is to allow patients to acquire new transferable skills and experience which can be used in future employment or voluntary work.

  • Skills assessment group
  • Motivational group
  • IT skills
  • Education groups
  • Independent living skills sessions
  • Breakfast club
