Beverley House is a 24-bedded rehabilitation and recovery service for females with complex mental health needs and co-morbid presentations, such as personality disorders and eating disorders.
We aim to support all of our patients with a comprehensive occupational therapy programme that will engage individuals at any level of need. We help to develop patients' life skills and provide activities of daily living to promote independence.
The clinical programmes at Beverley House focus on rehabilitation both on-site and in the community, and include programmes that are specifically focused on treating challenging behaviours, minimising the risk to self and others and building skills for a safe discharge into the community.
Real work opportunities are available, which model community employment using job applications and interviews to obtain paid roles within the town centre.
We also adopt an Observation Reduction Programme using daily reviews by clinicians, with all residents on enhanced observations. This supports residents to be responsible for their own risk and to reduce observation levels and maximise liberty within safe parameters.
Treatment programmes run on a 12-week rotation. This enables programmes to be adapted to the patient’s needs. Therapeutic sessions include:
- Goal setting
- Living together
- Mental health awareness
- Relapse prevention
- Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) skills group
- Smoking cessation
- Transition to the community
- Substance misuse
- Risk management
- Social inclusion
We believe that the environment in which treatment takes place, as well as its facilities, are as important as the therapy itself. The service provides:
- An in-house chef with special dietary meals served in our dining room
- A Real Work Opportunity (RWO) Programme, modelling community employment by using job applications and interviews, for residents to obtain paid roles within the hospital
- Access to a full-time social worker to liaise with family members and manage benefits and housing
- Regular community meetings and patient representative meetings encouraging residents to participate in the development of the service
