This is a multi-skilled team providing rehabilitation for adult inpatients and day patients. It offers assessment, resettlement and specialist interventions such as life skills, stress management, art therapy, drama, movement therapy, work skills and psychotherapy to enable clients with significant psychological difficulties to cope with everyday life in the community, or to prepare them for returning home from an inpatient stay. Therapy takes place on both a group and individual basis, in a hospital setting and community locations.
