Picasso Ward is a 21 bed high dependency inpatient rehabilitation service for females, based at Cygnet Hospital Woking. The service is delivered in a purpose-built therapeutic environment, where the focus is on maximizing positive outcomes and recovery. All bedrooms are en-suite and the hospital offers a range of social, relaxation and activity areas. The service strengthens the female care pathway at Cygnet Hospital Woking, providing a pathway from the women’s low secure service, Oaktree Ward, and the new female PICU service, Acorn Ward. Picasso Ward provides a high level of therapeutic care and support that is underpinned by knowledge and practice of evidence-based interventions, delivered by a highly experienced multidisciplinary team. Our individualised and group treatment programmes are DBT informed and have clearly defined goals and outcomes for our service users. Treatment is offered in a safe, calm and therapeutic environment where patients develop skills for maximising their independence, self-confidence and knowledge of how to manage their mental wellbeing.
