Dragon Ward – Tier 4 Adolescent Low Secure

Gender: Mixed

Age: 12-18

Beds: 10

Dragon Ward is a CAMHS low secure service for young people with complex mental health needs. This new service is due to open in January 2022.

The ward will support young people who may need a longer stay in an inpatient setting within a low secure environment. The service will focus on working with young people to understand their mental health, their risks and support their recovery, enabling them to be successfully discharged to a less restrictive environment and to reduce the possibility of relapse and likelihood of requiring a secure service in the future.

There is a diverse educational programme teaching a range of subjects available at the on-site school, Summit School.
