Riverhill Ward – General Adolescent

Cygnet Hospital Godden Green provides an acute CAMHS service over two wards for young people aged between 12 and 18 years old. The wards, Knole (15 beds) and Riverhill (5 beds), give young people the chance to step down through their care pathway.

Our service also includes an on-site Ofsted-registered school, the Knole Development Centre.

The aim of the service is to help young people stabilise and return home as soon as possible.

“My daughter has just been discharged from this Cygnet hospital. After eight weeks of intensive, caring, appropriate, considerate support, I’ve just picked up a young woman who, two months ago, I was convinced would die, and is now looking forward to life. You can go to Cygnet Godden Green with confidence that they will care for you and you will be listened to.”Parent
