Priory Hospital Nottingham provides effective and personalised evidence-based treatment programmes for both males and females aged 18 years or older, who require acute mental health emergency care.
The support we offer is occupational-therapy based and we provide a variety of therapeutic interventions including:
- Mindfulness informed therapy
- Activities of daily living
- Cooking activities
- Art therapy
All treatment that takes place is personalised to each individual’s needs and includes and focuses on aspects of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT).
Nottingham offers open-group therapy sessions which provide acute mental health patients the chance to attend where schedules allow. These groups tend to be based on specific areas such as anxiety and CBT skills and focus is both educational and therapeutic.
We also ensure patients have a say in their treatment and arrange weekly team meetings with both patients and staff.
Art therapy is an important part of treatment as it provides a creative way of supporting recovery and may be particularly useful for patients who are unable to, or do not wish to, engage in a group or individual verbal therapy. As such, this is not a class but a space where individuals are free to explore without being judged.
This hospital is conveniently located near the centre of Nottingham, ensuring easy access by train, bus or car.
We ensure a comfortable and safe environment for all patients, and our newly-decorated facility includes:
- 14 en-suite bedrooms
- ‘Safer’ rooms
- Full disabled access with wheelchair lift
- A private, enclosed garden area
- A female-only lounge
- Designated group and activities rooms
- A dining room with bespoke menus
