We are delighted to announce the opening of our newest home, Woodside, in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire! Woodside provides specialist therapeutic residential placements for up to 5 young people aged 16-25 with complex mental health needs.
Woodside will implement Care in Mind’s established model of care, working innovatively to support young people with high levels of risk and complexity in the least restrictive setting. Our specialist model provides an integrated approach, with comprehensive clinical MDT support within the residential setting. Each young person has an allocated clinical nurse specialist and clinical psychologist and is under the care of a consultant psychiatrist. This enables timely, individualised interventions to be delivered to our young people. Least restrictive practice and a therapeutic risk management approach are central in how we work with young people. We approach risk management collaboratively with young people, with the aim of supporting them to develop resilience and responsibility.
