Brookhaven, Preston

22 bed, Mixed sex, Open Rehabilitation Service

Brookhaven is a 22 bed adult age nursing home providing an open-rehabilitation, complex care service to individuals with enduring mental health needs. The service is delivered by an experienced, multi-disciplinary team of psychiatry, nursing, and occupational therapy staff.

Admission Criteria:

  • Men and Women over the age of 18
  • Informal referrals or via Community Treatment Orders (CTO)
  • With a primary diagnosis of mental illness
  • The level of risk does not require a locked facility
  • Service users should be prepared to engage with services and have an active involvement in treatment

The emphasis of the care at Brookhaven is on inclusion, skills development and consolidation, risk reduction, and relapse prevention. Brookhaven has an effective ‘Recovery and Social Inclusion Programme’ that enables service users to access both community and unit-based leisure activities, adult educational opportunities and vocational/work schemes.

The aim of the work we do at Brookhaven is to support the work already undertaken by service-users in their previous placements, giving patients the opportunity to achieve goals, gain confidence and increase their independence before returning to the wider community. We believe that social integration and inclusion are central to providing service users with skills necessary for living in more open environments.
