Cygnet Delfryn House

Argoed Hall Lane, Mold, Flintshire, CH7 6FQ

Set amid the rolling hills of Flintshire, Cygnet Delfryn House is our 28 bed high dependency inpatient rehabilitation service for men who have severe and enduring mental illness and who may have been detained under the Mental Health Act. Men placed with us often come from multiple placement breakdowns, failed treatment programmes or are stepping down from secure settings.

Our state-of-the-art service has been designed with wellness in mind, providing a safe and comfortable environment that promotes efficient rehabilitation and recovery. We are dedicated to understand, stabilise and break the traumatic cycles of relapse that can impact service users’ lives.

Delfryn House

Our psychology and occupational therapy led interventions effectively tackle the challenges of mental health and alongside our clinical interventions we help men enhance their personal skills to rebuild their lives.

Our care embraces a balanced approach to risk management and therapeutic optimism. Service users have access to a range of therapies and opportunities and care plans are individualised.

When the time is right, access to the local community is an essential step along the pathway to independence, for both leisure pursuits and for social training such as shopping and using public transport. External activities are tailored to individual needs and wishes.

Vocational support is provided to help service users prepare for employment and other vocational activities. The men are supported to create CVs, apply for jobs, practice for and attend interviews as well as develop other skills necessary in a work environment. We also offer a range of internal therapeutic earning positions within Cygnet Delfryn House where service users have the opportunity to apply for, be interviewed for and take on the responsibility of a suitable job. The men receive training by a staff member that is skilled in the particular job.

Delfryn House and Lodge hold a S.C.U.D. day of fun and laughter

Service users and staff at Delfryn House and Lodge recently joined forces to hold a “S.C.U.D.” day. S.C.U.D. stands for “Savour the Comic Unplug the Drama”. This is an American idea, where people are encouraged to break from their normal routine for the day.
