Where you will be working
Spring Wood Lodge supports women over the age of 18 who have complex emotional and mental health problems associated with significant risk behaviours. Typically they have a diagnosis of personality disorder or a severe mental illness. They may not have had their needs met in a general psychiatric service including acute inpatient units, community mental health teams or community personality disorder service. The service focuses on active rehabilitation with a view to achieving a sustainable discharge.
We have two wards which together constitute an internal pathway to support service users along their recovery journey. Service users can be admitted to either of the wards depending on their individual needs and risks.
Bronte Ward, an intensive support ward
A nine bed ward providing a safe clinical environment for women with high risks of self-harm and non-adherence to treatment which may be coupled with forms of aggression. The focus on Bronte Ward is to reduce the acute risks of self- harm by addressing their core difficulties.
Byron Ward, a treatment and recovery
A twelve bed ward provides the space for women to address their mental health and emotional difficulties whilst developing the necessary skills to manage their symptoms, emotions, interpersonal issues and risks. The 5 bed pre-discharge area promotes the self-management of mental health, recognition of risks and triggers and the development of living skills required for community living
