We provide a value for money, specialist mental health, service for children and adolescents on an outpatient, day patient and inpatient basis.
We offer specialist hospital care for young people with mental health issues. This is integrated with our outpatient and day patient services for both private and NHS patients. Each service user has their own room, in a safe, comfortable hospital, with access to many other amenities and services. How long they stay depends on the severity of their problems , and our aim is to help each patient get well and return home as soon as possible.
In addition to the core Multi Disciplinary Team care may also include family, group and individual therapy, education and activity programmes. We also involve other specialists, if there are other issues such as eating disorders or addictive behaviour.
We invite all agencies involved to attend the service user's reviews, and provide the referrer with regular treatment summaries and ongoing communication, as well as full reports and a discharge summary. Optional aftercare is also available.

I came to the YPU as a scared messed up girl and managed to sort everything out. I am not a victim, I am a survivor. This could not be possible without the support of the staff on the YPU.
