Service List

  1. Acorn Lodge Children's Unit

    We offer assessment and treatment for children aged between four and 12 years old, who have a wide range of severe emotional or behavioural disorders

    This includes neurodevelopmental disorders and very early-onset psychosis. We adopt a flexible model, allowing us to accept emergency admissions.

    Acorn lodge is temporarily closed

    Our unit works closely with families to understand their child's needs, the impact of the child on other family members, and of the family on the child.

    Treatment at Acorn Lodge is based around a weekly, five-day model, allowing the child to spend the weekend at home, if possible. In some cases, children require a seven-day provision at certain stages during their admission to enhance their recovery. We believe this flexible model is very important for both the child and the family to help minimise the time away from home, and also to try interventions within a community setting.

    Our staff are from a variety of specialised backgrounds, including child psychiatry, clinical psychology, nursing, social work and occupational therapy. Education is provided on site by specialist teaching staff at the Bethlem Royal Hospital school.

  5. Adult Personality Disorder Service (Croydon)

    The Croydon Adult Personality Disorder Service is a specialist multidisciplinary psychotherapy service providing psychotherapeutic treatment for people with moderate to severe personality disorder across Tiers 1-3 of the mental health services in Croydon.

    We provide consultation, assessment and treatment programme, for patients presenting with emotionally unstable personality disorder (and other associated personality difficulties). The Tier 3 day hospital service is aimed at people who have frequent service contacts, previous unsuccessful treatment of their condition and need a high level of psychiatric and psychotherapy intervention.

    To reach this patient group we in-reach to the Croydon inpatient wards to offer consultation, assessment and a pathway to accessing psychotherapeutic treatment for those it would benefit. We aim to help reduce the length of stay in hospital for those who are willing to engage in therapy. For people whose level of risk is too high for a community treatment we can complete assessments to screen for suitability for a Tier 4 personality disorder inpatient treatment.

    For these patients we work towards providing an alternative to hospital admission. We can also care co-ordinate the patients in the tier 3 service and specifically focus on supporting the safe transition between services.

    In addition, we offer tier 2 level treatments including an intensive outpatient programme and a lower intensity outpatient treatment as well as an open access community based group known as the Sun Project (tier 1).

    The Sun Project, (a self-referral, crisis and coping skills group) in central Croydon provides a service that is readily accessible to those previously excluded from psychiatric services or conventional out-patient psychotherapy.

    All tiers of our service aim to help people build a life worth living, promote recovery, improve social and interpersonal functioning, and increase the appropriate use of other statutory and voluntary sector services.

    All therapy is being delivered via Microsoft Teams at present due to safety restrictions required during the Covid 19 pandemic

  9. Anxiety Disorders Residential Unit

    We aim to offer high quality CBT aimed at reducing symptoms of anxiety disorder and improve functioning and quality of life. This would lead to reduced need for local service provision.

    The advantages of admission to a residential setting are the ability to deliver CBT in a more intensive format. Staff or residents may assist in frequent exposure or behavioural experiments in a supportive environment. There are more opportunities for modelling and positive reinforcement by others in the moment. There is increased flexibility in delivery of the therapy that can keep the momentum going. Sometimes there are advantages to removing a person from their home context.

    We integrate occupational therapy into the therapy. Living in a residential unit increases responsibility that may not occur on an inpatient unit with nursing staff as well as the support and reinforcement from other residents. Lastly the unit can monitor any medication changes or adherence.

    For patients with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), we operate at the highest level of stepped care in the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines. We do this by providing intensive CBT for the treatment of severe OCD and BDD.

    For patients with other anxiety disorders (post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social phobia, agoraphobia/panic, specific phobias, generalised anxiety disorder) the service also operates at the highest level of stepped care in the respective NICE guidelines. We do this by providing intensive CBT and optimisation of medication for the relevant anxiety disorder. The service is for those who have severe symptoms and who have failed treatment locally.

  10. Assertive Outreach Rehabilitation Team (AORT)

    The Assertive Outreach Rehabilitation Team (AORT) offers a model that utilises a whole systems approach to rehabilitation from mental illness. The tripartite model consists of two rehabilitation branches and an assertive outreach branch, utilising a shared care approach across the team with the aims of recovery and move-on at the forefront. The Assertive Outreach (AO) branch aims to provide a more enhanced service for people diagnosed with serious mental illness and to deliver evidence-based interventions and care whilst increasing service user and carer satisfaction. AO adopts an assertive and proactive way of working, utilising a whole-team approach to provide continuity of care and encourage creativity in engagement and positive risk taking. The AO multidisciplinary team provides most interventions from within the team and delivers care wherever is required and most appropriate. The rehabilitation branches aim to provide an enhanced service for service users with diagnosed serious mental health conditions that require supported or residential accommodation, embodying evidence based practice to promote rehabilitation, social inclusion and increased independence. The rehabilitation branches aim to use the FACT approach to team work, operating shared care across a proportion of the team caseload. The whole team approach embodies independence and recovery from treatment resistant mental ill health.

    - there is a moderate or serious risk of harm to self or others
    - the primary problem is not one of harmful use of alcohol or drugs
    - there may be a psychotic disorder which can't be managed in primary care.

    Examples of possible outcomes are as follows:

    - discharge back to primary care with detailed advice and guidance about treatment
    - referral onwards to other secondary or more specialist service
