Lower East – Men’s Medium Secure

Lower East is a medium secure service that supports men who present high risk and those which other services have struggled to diagnose. It can support men with personality disorder and mental illness, working with them to develop truly individualised programmes that support them through their pathway.

Lower East uses an eclectic model of treatment based on the principles of the recovery model of care including psychological therapies, occupational therapy, social therapy, physical healthcare and medication. Risk assessment tools are used and a clinical formulation is developed to inform the management plans for each patient.

Each service user has a treatment plan and a weekly therapeutic timetable which can include: individual and group psychology, counselling for drug and alcohol misuse, anger management, social skills development, daily living skills development, healthy living, IT skills training, education and vocational development, group games and activities.

All service users have their own private bedrooms with full en-suite facilities and access to a range of recreational space including a gym, laundry, occupational therapy kitchen, therapy garden and external sports pitch.

In addition to Lower East, Cygnet Hospital Bury also has two further medium secure services, Madison and Colombus, that specialise in treating men with a personality disorder.
