An independent hospital providing holistic care and therapeutic intervention in a safe community environment.
Our hospital lends itself to people who have found it difficult to reintegrate back into the community. We have a proven track-record of helping individuals who come to us with a history of placement breakdowns.
Brook House provides care and rehabilitative support for up to 12 male adults experiencing complex mental health needs, who have been detained under the provisions of The Mental Health Act (1983). Located in a pleasant residential area of Old Trafford, it is close to the city centre, has excellent transport links and good access to local amenities.
Deepdene Care has operated Brook House since its acquisition in 2008 and has made a significant investment in the service provision and infrastructure. With services operating throughout the UK, the group has developed strong and stable compliance, governance and central support frameworks from which Brook House benefits.
Our service users have high and complex mental health needs including severe and enduring mental illnesses, challenging behaviour and drug or alcohol dependency. We are well equipped to accommodate those who exhibit behaviours such as self-harm, personality disorders, dual diagnosis or have a forensic history.
Our hospital is ideally placed to work closely with the local community. Participation in community activities is actively encouraged through service user meetings and the provision of individually tailored care plans that are outcome based and address the practical, social and psychological needs of each person to enable them to live as independently as possible.
Brook House service users are supported by a multi-disciplinary team including a consultant psychiatrist and a consultant physician, registered mental health nurses, social worker, occupational therapist and experienced care support workers.
Working to the principles of the recovery model, our service delivery is based upon inclusion and the provision of person centred care and sensitive treatment for individuals. It is aimed at improving mental health, reducing and eliminating inappropriate behaviour and risks and replacing them with appropriate patterns of coping, problem solving and improved personal and social skills.
We develop partnerships with each individual service user and focus on their recovery through the formulation of individualised pathways of care that focus on their strengths and aspirations, empowering each individual to engage in positive risk taking in their care and rehabilitation programme.
We recognise that each service user is an individual in their own right with their own specific and often complex needs. Our goal is to offer the range of support needed to enable each individual to work towards achieving the most positive outcome for them, whether this is a return to independent living and employment, or to a supported environment where they can access all the services the community has to offer.
Brook House is able to facilitate this progression with the provision of supported community housing that will enable individuals to continue their journey at a pace that is determined by them.
