A mental health care service for children and adolescents alike.

Situated in Maidenhead, we specialise in supporting young people with severe or complex mental health conditions who need intensive inpatient treatment.  We are dedicated to providing caring, supportive, recovery-focused treatment and we achieve this by working together with our young people, their families and other professionals.

Our model of care is clinically led and has been put together by our doctors, nurses, psychologists, therapists, social worker and other experts in this field.  It also builds upon the feedback we have received from young people and their families about what matters to them.

We draw on a wide range of evidence to help inform how we treat and support every young person we care for.  A genuine person-centred approach sits at the heart of our model because no two individuals share exactly the same needs, hopes and challenges.

We have our own Ofsted registered school on site so our young people can continue with their studies while receiving treatment, as long as they are well enough to attend.

There are five separate units on our Maidenhead site spread across three buildings:  Kennet: Eating Disorders Service, Thames, Juniper and Holly : Psychiatric Intensive Care Units and Tamar: General Adolescent Service. Each unit has its own dedicated Consultant-led Multi-Disciplinary Team who have many years of experience in looking after young people with complex mental health conditions.

Conditions we support, but are not limited to:

  • Anorexia Nervosa
  • Anxiety Disorder
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Depression
  • Mood Disorders
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Psychosis
  • Schizoaffective Disorder
  • Undiagnosed Emerging Personality Disorder (UEPD)
