Young people move into FitzRoy
Posted on Jan 4 2017 by
FitzRoy House has been carefully designed with the input of psychiatrists, nursing teams, occupational therapists and the patients themselves, to create the best possible environment for recovery. Decisions on ward names, the interior colour scheme and the many artwork installations have been led by patients to help create a feeling of warmth and welcome.
St Andrew’s Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service cares for young patients with mental illnesses, autistic spectrum disorders and learning disabilities. As a charity we have invested significantly to bring patients the latest therapeutic developments to support personalised care packages.
Features of FitzRoy House include:
Added to all these facilities is a central courtyard with a water feature, a café for patients, visitors and staff, and huge amounts of outside space, including a courtyard for every ward. Numerous comfortable visitor suites have also been developed so that our patients can spend more time with friends and family.
FitzRoy House is a major milestone in our journey to become a world-class mental healthcare provider. We believe it will become a centre of excellence in transforming the lives of young people with complex mental health conditions. We already have an enviable track record in helping our young patients progress back into the community, by giving them coping and life skills as well as support to gain academic qualifications and work experience. FitzRoy House will help us take this even further.
