Mill Garth Hospital

Mill Garth Hospital is a 21-bedded locked rehabilitation and recovery service suitable for men aged 18 years and over. The hospital focuses on active rehabilitation and recovery for those with mental illnesses and personality disorders.

We believe that anyone with a mental health condition should be given the best chance possible to lead a happy and fulfilling life, and our aim is to provide individuals with the confidence and skills to move or return to the community.

Situated in the Meanwood area of Leeds, we are just two miles north of Leeds city centre, which allows for easy access to a vibrant community with useful amenities that our patients can enjoy. The hospital provides a safe, friendly and welcoming environment that is ideal for building therapeutic and trusting relationships, to promote rehabilitation.

Our approach

We adopt an integrated treatment approach and our care plans are developed alongside the patient. We encourage patients to be a part of the decisions that are made for their treatment and this is reviewed every two weeks in patient review meetings.

Everyone receives an individualised timetable of activities, available seven days a week, which can include one-to-one or group therapy consisting of cognitive behavioural therapy, anger management sessions and problem solving skills.

We promote social inclusion and our links to the local community enable our patients to take part in voluntary work, education and have access to local support networks. We also actively encourage families and carers to be a part of the treatment process and they can attend review meetings when possible.

The expertise and vast knowledge within our multidisciplinary team allows us to manage and treat even the most complex cases, as well as individuals with personality disorders alongside other mental illnesses. The team includes:

  • Consultant psychiatrist
  • Senior charge nurse
