Haven Ward – Tier 4 Adolescent PICU

Cygnet Hospital Sheffield offers a CAMHS Tier 4 PICU service and a CAMHS Acute service over two wards. They offer individualised care for young people aged between 12 and 18 who are experiencing a mental health crisis or whose needs mean they cannot be supported in community settings. Both services provide safe, therapeutic environments with a focus on helping the young person stabilise, so that hospital treatment is no longer required.

Haven Ward is a CAMHS Tier 4 PICU service and provides support for young people, both male and female who have complex needs and require high intensity nursing care. The focus is on stabilisation with a view to enabling transition to a general acute ward or back into the care of community services.

The service is able to provide robust care and support for young people displaying significant levels of challenge. Haven Ward has full MDT input including a specialist doctor, psychologist, social worker, occupational therapist and educational support from full-time teachers and educational support staff. The service works with young people to prepare them for discharge back out of service and into their home area, whilst still in a robust and supportive PICU environment.

There is a diverse educational programme in place, so that young people can continue their education at the same time as receiving treatment. Education is provided by our Phoenix School which has a ‘Good’ rating with Ofsted.
