Why the Low Secure Division?
Our division is specially designed for adults over the age of 18 with Mental Health, Personality Disorders and challenging behaviour. These include patients who might be a danger to themselves or others, or have committed serious offences. The division provides treatment in both secure and specialist non-secure rehabilitation facilities. Our facilities, activities, therapies and services are designed with our patients, recovery and community reintegration in mind.
We believe every individual has strengths; our treatment programs build on these to help our service users recover. We want all patients in our division to have the right care, treatment and support to be able to move into an environment of a lower security, and eventually return to the community.
