Kemple View

Kemple View is a 90-bedded site offering 56 low secure beds and 34 locked rehabilitation beds catering to the treatment needs of service users with a mental illness and/or personality disorder, maximising their opportunity for recovery, rehabilitation and independent living.

This hospital also has a dedicated and purpose-built ward offering a low secure forensic specialist older age service for patients over the age of 50. A higher profile is given to this patient group's physical healthcare, complex psychiatric needs and where required, mobility and daily living aids.

Our approach

Kemple View offers a variety of bespoke, award winning, evidence-based therapies available to patients including:

  • Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT)
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
  • Offence focused interventions

We also focus on community practice to ensure generalisability of learning.

All therapies can be delivered in groups or on an individual basis, and are tailored to patients with mental disorders and differing cognitive abilities, to ensure that responsivity issues are addressed. Lack of motivation and lack of insight are specifically identified as a focus for therapy rather than a barrier to it. We offer an evidence-based individualised treatment approach, for example, the holistic integrated treatment model for mental disorder and substance misuse service users.

Across all wards, our occupational therapy service has a specific focus on the development and establishment of functional skills ranging from:

  • Promoting independence in personal care tasks
  • Developing optimum competence in more complex tasks such as managing a budget or engaging in work type occupations

Kemple View service benefits from access to a wide range of community based voluntary experience, supported work and recreational activities.

These therapeutic interventions are delivered within a facilitating environment, using positive psychological approaches to ensure effective learning and behavioural change. Kemple View is a mindful site, an accredited centre of excellence for RAID, and our highly specialised clinicians have extensive experience in the assessment and treatment of men with complex psychiatric needs.
