We are committed to providing caring, supportive, recovery-focused treatment and we achieve this by working together with our young people, their families, and other professionals. Our Tier 4 Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) hospitals deliver specialist treatment to young people with severe or complex mental health conditions who need intensive inpatient treatment.

Multi-disciplinary Experts

Each unit has its own dedicated Multi-Disciplinary Team, including Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses and a wide range of therapists.

Experienced Teams

With over 25 years’ practical experience and knowledge dealing with young people with mental health conditions, we understand complex care in a way few others do.

Accommodations

We provide three types of accommodation: Psychiatric Intensive Care Units (PICU), General Adolescent Units (GAU) and Eating Disorders Units.

On Site Schools

Each hospital has its own Ofsted registered school on site so our young people can continue with their studies while receiving treatment.

Being here I’m surrounded by people who care for me. I’m able to express my emotions and I’m helped to understand them. All my carers are especially kind and help me whenever I need it.

Specialist care & accommodation.

We provide three types of accommodation across our specialist child and adolescent mental health services.

Psychiatric Intensive Care Units (PICU) are small specialist wards that provide immediate inpatient assessment and treatment to young people who are going through a sudden and serious mental health crisis and who may be in danger of harming themselves or others. They need to be cared for at short notice in a secure setting. Often, following a short stay in a PICU ward, young people are discharged to a general adolescent unit (GAU) for ongoing treatment once the immediate crisis is over. Some young people are able to go straight home if they have made a full recovery.

General Adolescent Units (GAU) are for young people who are either ready to step-down from a PICU setting or who have complex, severe or enduring mental health issues. These young people need support from a Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) and time to work through their problems in an inpatient setting.

Eating Disorder Unit (EDU) for young people with eating disorders, such as Anorexia Nervosa, are generally treated and cared for in a separate eating disorder unit.  An EDU provides a safe, therapeutic, supportive and structured environment for young people who are struggling to recover from their eating disorder in the community.  These young people need support to recover and maintain a healthy weight and support to change their thinking, feelings and behaviour. Most young people are admitted directly from home, from a CAMHS or paediatric ward or are sometimes referred by a community CAMHS team.

Passionate about people, passionate about care.

We don’t just look after the clinical needs of the people we support. We look after the person, including their personal, social and emotional needs. Highly flexible, personalised support can make a difference not just to the person with the condition, but to their family and friends as well. Let some of our residents and members of their families tell you about how we’ve been able to help them and their loved ones.

Commitment to quality

Our agreed strategic goals define what we want our organisation to achieve. We have aligned them with the five domains of the Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection standards. We have a unique, diversified capability across residential homes, care in the home and case management services. We have predominately Outstanding and Good CQC ratings.

Although our main regulatory body is CQC, Active Care Group is also registered with other regulatory bodies, including Ofsted, Care Inspectorate Wales and Care Inspectorate Scotland.
