Those We Can Assist

    The Hospital – A Unique Service for Adults with Mental Health Issues

We work with individuals with complex mental health needs who require a further period of rehabilitation in order to optimise their potential for recovery. 

This may include individuals who are subject to detention under the Mental Health Act and/or currently residing in secure services ready to stepdown to a less secure setting; or individuals where management within locked and secure settings has not yielded significant benefit and where an alternative approach, such as the one we offer is likely to facilitate positive progress and change.     

Our main focus is always to improve the person’s ability to self-control, and engage with society as independently as is safe and appropriate.

We rely on therapeutic relational security rather than locked doors or high walls to maintain safety, thereby assisting the person to develop skills in environments more akin to the real world they will be returning to.

We achieve this through being person centred in all our actions, being respectful and understanding of the difficulties a person is going through whilst assisting the person to acknowledge their own role in managing their difficulties for their safety and the safety of others.

All interventions are evidence based within a holistic therapeutic care plan which acknowledges the major role of being in a safe environment where contact with nature assists the healing process, an aspect of care that has been central to our philosophy for over twenty years and which is gaining more recognition in mainstream healthcare.

Admission to the hospital is subject to an in-depth pre-admission assessment undertaken in conjunction with the individual and all those involved in their care.

Once suitability has been established and prior to admission, the MDT consult with the commissioning team, care coordinator, and the patient to identify the aims and goals for the patient’s stay at Coed Du Hall, including identification of potential appropriate discharge pathways and timescales.  Depending on complexity and progressed achieved, a normal stay is usually between twelve and twenty four months.

The pathway may include a further period of recovery within one of the four self-contained studio flats which are integrated within the hospital site as well as the potential, for suitable individuals, of transitioning through to one of our Community Houses in Mold and Rhos on Sea.

Restrictive interventions, including medication, is kept to a minimum through people having a personalised plan of activities with a major emphasis on being occupied, with the opportunity to join therapeutic groups as well as one to one sessions. The extensive grounds and high levels of general support assist individuals to work through their issues, ensuring there is the possibility of learning from every event, positive or negative.

Goals and objectives are reviewed and developed through weekly named nurse and key worker sessions as well as through the monthly multidisciplinary reviews which are always a time to take stock and identify goals for the following month.

The individual is always at the forefront of everything we do.
