Roseacre Ward – Highly Specialised Personality Disorder Service

Roseacre Ward is our new service for women with a personality disorder at Cygnet Hospital Maidstone, our new state-of-the-art facility situated in the Kent Medical Campus.

Roseacre Ward is designed to a Tier 4 specification but commissioned by CCGs. Building on the expertise of the other personality disorder services within the Cygnet Health Care portfolio, Roseacre Ward will further complement our comprehensive national network of specialist services for women with this diagnosis.

Roseacre Ward is highly specialised in terms of the programmes we operate, and the service is supported by Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). Our comprehensive multi-disciplinary team includes a Consultant Psychiatrist, Clinical Psychology, Occupational Therapy, DBT Therapists and a nursing and support work team. The aim of the service is to support individuals to manage their mental health, develop coping strategies, reinforce daily living skills and prepare for a return to independent life.
