Mental Health Services

Highfield Healthcare is a modern mental health service offering a full range of care and treatment to people experiencing mental health difficulties and mental health illnesses.  A full multidisciplinary health care team is in place to deliver treatment and therapeutic interventions to all our service users.

In line with our Strategic Plan several planned service developments will be implemented in early 2020, including the expansion of our general adult acute inpatient beds.  Building on the success of our first acute Day Hospital service in 2016, we will commission a second Day Hospital service to be fully operational by March 2020. Further service developments are also being worked upon as part of 2019 – 2022 Strategic plan to meet new and emerging needs. Of note, is the planned development of outreach services to support our patients following discharge from hospital.

Within our developing mental health services, we offer a supportive and team-based approach for all healthcare professionals and we are open to promoting developmental opportunities for our staff.

Our goal is to support the wider community where people are empowered and given the opportunity to live mentally healthy lives. We strive to provide the highest quality of mental healthcare in the most appropriate setting, to promote mental health, to be a leader in education, research and innovation and to speak out for the rights of those who experience mental health difficulties.
