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 have two wards – a male and a female ward.
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.
