Cygnet Hospital Kewstoke delivers a comprehensive and cost effective recovery focused pathway for males and females. The two female wards and three male wards provide an integrated care pathway for service users who are able to successfully move on to independent community living or a supported living service such as Cygnet Supported Living.
The hospital is set in 16 acres of landscaped grounds overlooking the Bristol Channel, we provide a tranquil and therapeutic environment offering service users a broad range of therapies to include, CAT, CBT & DBT.
The hospital provides 57 inpatient beds within a low secure setting, including a male PICU within the same secure perimeter. All bedrooms are single, with en-suite bathrooms, and each of the four wards has its own garden or terrace. There is a fully equipped gym and activities suite.
On the same site at the hospital is The Lodge, an intensive community rehabilitation service for men, which provides care for informal individuals as well as those who may be formally detained. The Lodge is separate from the main low secure service, and provides the next step in the care pathway from the low secure wards, or a step up from community placements which may have broken down.
Our new female transitional service, based on Knightstone Ward, is aimed at those women who are already engaged in treatment, and actively working towards moving out of secure services to supported or independent living in the future. The new service means that Cygnet Hospital Kewstoke can offer a comprehensive, recovery-focused, rehabilitation care pathway exclusively for female service users.

Our multi-disciplinary team works across the whole hospital and makes use of a broad range of therapies, including CAT, CBT and DBT that are tailored to individual needs. We run a number of groups, such as a 'Hearing Voices Group', which many of our service users find useful as a way to share their experience.

We also offer a comprehensive programme for those individuals who, as well as having a major mental illness, have abused drug and or alcohol. This programme is integrated into the therapeutic programme across the hospital, including The Lodge and the PICU, and is accessible to all service users.

Our aim at Kewstoke is to help people learn how to manage their mental health and reinforce their daily living skill, to prepare for independent life back in the community, or for moving into mainstream rehabilitation. We actively involve our services users in improving the services that we offer and encourage them and the hospital to be part of the local community.
