Calverton Hill provides care and treatment within a medium secure environment for males and females aged 18 years and older, with learning disabilities and for females with mental illnesses and/or personality disorders.
We also provide a 16-bedded mixed-gender acute service, delivered in partnership with Nottinghamshire Healthcare.
The treatment programmes at Calverton Hill aim to optimise patient recovery and potential by treating and minimising risk behaviours and by enabling them to develop psychological/emotional, social and occupational skills and resilience.
All interventions aim to help the patient to understand the effect of their behaviour on others, to help them to manage the impact of external triggers on their behaviour and ultimately to promote the concept of recovery. These include:
- Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT)
- Mental health awareness group
- Individual and group psychological therapy
- Recovery and mental health awareness
- Managing anger programme (MAP)
- Drug and alcohol programme
- Relationship programme (social skills)
- Coping skills programme
- Problem solving therapy
Our structured approach to care explicitly acknowledges and supports the issue of change (or readiness for change) and is essential for successful engagement and treatment.
We also provide real work opportunities (RWOs) which aim to identify job-specific skills, strengths and experience, develop job-acquisition skills, give appraisals and reviews, and identify roles and employment opportunities inside and outside the hospital setting.
Patients are supported to develop a CV, complete an application form and attend an interview.
The aim of the RWO Programme is to allow patients to acquire new transferable skills and experience, which can be used in future employment or voluntary work.
