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. Dragon Ward is now open and accepting referrals.

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.
