James Brindley based at Ardenleigh Hospital.
Ardenleigh is a nationally commissioned, 12 bedded, mixed gender unit for young people aged 12 to 19. The hospital provides assessment, treatment and care for young people who are experiencing complex mental health difficulties and pose a significant risk to others either through direct physical violence, sexually harmful behaviour and fire-setting, and who may also present a risk to themselves.
Within Ardenleigh there is also a nationally commissioned, 6 bedded, low secure unit for females called Adriatic.
It is part of our philosophy at James Brindley that we derive strength from the multidisciplinary approach, with many of our interventions being delivered by a number of disciplines, in order to maximise positive outcomes for our young people.
Being on site, James Brindley provides excellent education and vocational training opportunities to support the young people towards recovery. Ultimately, we aim that they gain independence and go on to lead a fulfilled life.
Ardenleigh is an accredited ASC centre and, as such, the clinical and education teams work together to ensure that every aspect of care and education responds to the growing number of young people admitted with an Autistic Spectrum Condition. The Centre for Learning (CfL) within Ardenleigh has recently acquired the status of a Certificate of Quality of Autism Provision.
