Cygnet Hospital Blackheath provides inpatient low secure and PICU services for men with a mental health illness. 

We accept urgent admissions from all over the country for people in acute psychiatric distress and can assess and transfer urgent prison referrals swiftly. We also provide an intensive programme of recovery in our low secure mental health ward, developing a personal therapeutic timetable to meet the needs of service users whatever their stage of recovery.

Cygnet Hospital Blackheath is part of our integrated male care pathway of services in south-east London that also includes our ‘step down’ mental health rehabilitation service at Cygnet Lodge Lewisham.

I am now working at Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park and also going to college doing an Urban Garden Design course. I feel like a new man because of the good things I received from them, which I have never received before.Service user, Cygnet Hospital Blackheath

All service users have their own en-suite room, furnished to a high standard. They also have access to our full range of facilities, including state of the art therapy rooms, a gym, secure garden and kitchen.

The hospital is set in a quiet, easily accessible location close to London, just off Blackheath Hill, within easy reach of the major road networks.
