Peak View – General Adolescent

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.

Peak View is a 15 bed general adolescent acute service, providing support for young people both male and female and is focused on helping them return home. Workis dedicated to helping them maintain their school placements if possible and admissions can be either formal or informal. Having a PICU and general adolescent acute service on one site provides a clear therapeutic pathway through the services.
