Mental health is a broad term that refers to someone's overall level of psychological and emotional wellbeing. Mental health is unique to all of us, and it can fluctuate throughout the course of our lives and in response to various events.

At Priory, we provide evidence-based mental health treatment for all of our patients, and we're dedicated to developing personalised treatment journeys, instead of taking a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Our mental health treatment programmes have been designed to address each person's unique difficulties and evaluate mental health challenges in a person-centred way, allowing us to identify underlying causes and individual triggers. This enables our specialists to deliver high quality mental health support for everyone who uses our services.

Specialist psychiatrists, psychologists and other professionals

Our specialist team of psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists and other healthcare professionals consists of thought leaders in their field. We are committed to remaining up to date with current research, to ensure that our practice adheres to National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines, and is guided by the very latest thinking. As such, we're extremely well-placed to provide treatment for a wide range of mental health challenges, ensuring the best possible outcomes for everyone we support.

At Priory, we use a range of established programmes and techniques for treating mental health conditions, enabling you to make a full and sustainable recovery. The type and combination of the therapeutic techniques we use for each individual and their mental health recovery, depends on your unique needs and is guided by the programme of care that's been designed for you.
