The Springs Wing – Highly Specialised Autism Spectrum Disorder service

The Springs Wing provides a 10 bed specialist rehabilitation service for men with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder, Asperger’s syndrome or High Functioning Autism, often with co-morbid mental health needs.

In addition to The Springs Wing, the ASD services at the hospital also include The Springs Unit (Low Secure ASD and MH) and The Springs Centre (Crisis ASD, ASD/MH Rehabilitation).

The aim of the service is to help an individual transition to more independent living, or supported living service. We can support those who may be stepping down from a low secure environment such as the Springs Unit.

We can support men who are not actively showing signs of immediate risk or aggression but who may have deficits in their activities of daily living or require support with their mental health needs. Service users are supported to be actively involved in their own rehabilitation.
