Cygnet Raglan House is a 25 bed high dependency inpatient rehabilitation hospital for women. The service is designed to provide an environment that promotes mental health recovery by focusing on space, personal privacy and dignity. Women admitted to the service often come from multiple placement breakdowns, failed treatment programmes or are stepping down from secure settings.

We are dedicated to understand, stabilise and break the traumatic cycles of relapse that can impact individual’s lives. Our service has been designed with wellness in mind, providing a safe and comfortable environment that promotes efficient rehabilitation and recovery.

Cygnet Raglan House is within walking distance to Smethwick Town Centre which is well placed to provide meaningful rehabilitation. It has libraries, community colleges, shops, a 24 hour Gym, 24 hour supermarkets and various places of worship. Birmingham City centre is approximately 15 minutes drive from the service.

Our psychology and occupational therapy led interventions effectively tackle the challenges of mental health and alongside our clinical interventions, we help women enhance their personal skills to rebuild their lives. Our care embraces a balanced approach to risk management and therapeutic optimism. Service users have access to a range of therapies and opportunities and care plans are individualised.

The local community is an essential step along the pathway to independence, for both leisure pursuits and for social training such as shopping and using public transport. External activities are tailored to individual needs and wishes and our membership in a local neighbourhood forum provides links to local businesses and voluntary organisations.

At Cygnet Raglan House we have a clear pathway into the community. 45 Portland Road, our community rehabilitation service based just 1 mile away is suitable for the women who have been able to progress through the hospital pathway who are now working towards independent living.
