Orion Unit

We provide an inpatient service at Highbury Hospital for adults aged between 18 and 65.

Our patients have an intellectual disability and complex mental health difficulties. They might also have challenging behaviours that cannot be managed in the community.

We care for people in difficulty and times of distress by offering an emotionally safe place where patients and staff find out how to cooperate with one another.

Our staff provide therapies and help patients to become ready for treatments delivered by others.

Patients at the Orion Unit have access to an expert team whose work is innovative and research-active.
