Llanarth Court

Llanarth Court is a specialist hospital providing medium and low secure care for men and women with mental illnesses and/or personality disorders and for men with intellectual/learning disabilities. We also have a four-bedded open rehabilitation bungalow. We are a sector-leading example of how providing a wide variety of care settings and a clear care pathway in the direction of recovery, can be achieved for all patients.

Our approach

With occupational therapy, we aim to help people to engage in occupations that give their lives meaning and value. This also helps to mitigate alienation and anti-social behaviour, assisting people to develop their interpersonal capacity, pro-social values, personal identity and skills for life participation.

The provision of occupational therapy is a central part of the care provided throughout Llanarth Court Hospital, enabling patients to choose to engage in a range of occupations that have meaning and purpose and are necessary for quality of life.

Llanarth Court runs a 12-week rotational therapeutic programme to help patients to develop coping strategies, insight and self-management of risk, both independently and with support. Programmes are repeated as required according to individual needs. They include:

  • Mental awareness health groups
  • Medication awareness groups
  • Physical healthcare
  • Individualised therapy
  • Substance awareness programme
  • Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT)
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) programme for managing difficult emotions
  • Mentalisation based therapy (MBT)

We believe that the environment in which treatment takes place, is as important as the therapy itself. Llanarth Court provides:

Occupational therapists play an important role in identifying occupations that are associated with, or lead to, offending behaviour. Equally, occupational therapy plays a part in supporting and instilling hope for patients’ goals and aspirations.

The therapy department supports individuals to retain and learn new skills that support their daily living, with an emphasis upon community reintegration and developing a graded programme for supporting patients back into the community.

Vocational rehabilitation plays an important role in supporting patients to establish meaningful and productive roles. The facilities at Llanarth Court support this, offering a wide range of activities in a number of different therapeutic environments.
