Services at Suttons Manor focus on the treatment and rehabilitation of mentally disordered men with mental illnesses and/or personality disorders, who are often referred to our care by the criminal justice system.
Our older age service provides care and treatment tailored to the individual, and delivered by our experienced multidisciplinary team with expertise in age-appropriate physical and mental healthcare. Our aim is to move the resident along a specific care pathway that will lead to maximum recovery, improved quality of life, and appropriate referral or discharge.
What is a Recovery College?
A Recovery College is a place where patients work together as trainers and students to further their recovery, with staff support as required.
A Recovery College is an environment where you can discover your potential and learn the skills to develop and maintain for self-management.
The Recovery College complements any therapeutics programmes that you may be involved in, and has an educational focus.
Who is it for?
At the moment, the Recovery College is for Suttons Manor patients. In the future, we hope that ex-patients and members of the wider community will be able to join us.
