Cygnet Hospital Bierley provides a range of low secure, specialist and psychiatric intensive care services for men and women, including a specialist personality disorder service for women.

The hospital is set across four wards offering single-sex male and female specialist mental health services in low secure and locked environments. All our services are provided under the umbrella of a recovery orientated approach and are reviewed through the CPA framework.

Cygnet Hospital Bierley has a true focus on the service user and the over-riding aim of providing the best quality treatment and care possible. Within the personality disorder service, service users are supported in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) by trained clinical professionals including psychologists and nurses.

The multi-disciplinary teams at the hospital work with service users to help people with acute, medium and long-term psychotic illnesses and challenging behaviour regain their independence and move from low secure facilities, to open acute and intensive community rehabilitation, including others within the Cygnet family of hospitals in northern England.

The hospital itself is not far from the M62 and close to Bradford. As a purpose-built building, there are a range of therapeutic and social spaces including a gym, IT classroom, activities of daily living (ADL) kitchen, sensory room, outdoor enclosed courtyards and a multi purpose art room. All service users have their own en-suite bedroom.
