Beacon Lodge is a 12 bed unit for people recovering from an acute phase of mental illness. We deliver support and interventions for people who are well enough to leave acute inpatient mental healthcare but who require support before returning to independent living.
We provide a range of community-based support services to help the transition, including:
The service is a pilot, delivered in partnership with Turning Point.
Referrals to Beacon Lodge are made from inpatient services. Discussions about whether a transition is needed will take place in ward reviews where a service user, carer and family and community care team can also be part of the decision making and referral process.
