The Springs Centre – Highly Specialised Autism Spectrum Disorder service

The Springs Centre supports up to 15 men with mental health needs and an additional diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder. The Springs Centre is positioned between the low secure service (Springs Unit) and the open rehabilitation service (Springs Wing) at Cygnet Hospital Harrow.

The Springs Centre also provides four rapid or emergency access beds to support those who may be in crisis or have high dependency needs – for example if a community placement has broken down or if they are struggling in an open rehabilitation environment. For these ‘crisis’ placements, the aim is to keep them as short as possible, with a focus on stabilizing the service user so they can return as quickly as possible to their community or open rehabilitation setting.

To make a referral, please call our central Referral Line on 0808 164 4450 or send an email to chcl.referrals@nhs.net.
