Lakeside View

Priory Lakeside View cares for men and women with mental health needs in both an acute setting and a locked personality disorder treatment and rehabilitation setting.

The hospital has 32 beds comprising of 16 personality disorder rehabilitation beds and 16 acute mental health beds.

Lakeside View’s versatility allows us to manage complex needs in a safe and therapeutic environment, and to support and promote independence.

Personality disorder service

Our personality disorder service provides care and rehabilitation for women between the ages of 18 and 35 years. This includes a specific transitional care pathway designed for young women aged 18 – 25 years, transitioning from adolescent to adult services.

This service offers dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) to women with personality disorders. Our staff are specially trained to work with people with a personality disorder. Our DBT team have completed:

  • DBT intensive training
  • DBT foundation training
  • DBT essential skills training
  • Knowledge and understanding framework (KUF) training

Acute service

Our acute service provides dedicated mental health treatment for young women, aged 18 – 25 years and men of working age, across two separate buildings, separated by gender.

Our aim is to:

  • Act as an extension to NHS care pathways during times of fluctuating capacity and flow
  • Allow more people to receive care and treatment closer to home
  • Provide continuity of care
  • Allow for minimum disruption to patients and their loved ones

Our approach

We provide individual programmes that offer structured treatment, balanced with building life skills and preparation for adult education, work opportunities and, where appropriate, transition into adulthood.

The main therapeutic approach for the personality disorder service is DBT. This includes individual therapy, DBT group skills and telephone consultations Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm. Weekly consultations with DBT therapists are also included.

Our other treatment programmes, dependent on the patient group and their needs, focus on, but are not limited to:

  • Self-harm reduction
  • Relapse prevention
  • Self-esteem and confidence building
  • Motivation and self-management
  • Skills development for independent living
  • Physical healthcare
