About

Our secure services are focused on providing support for men who have experience with the legal system because of their mental health needs. We aim to provide them with a safe and secure environment that supports their recovery, giving them access to a wide range of treatments, therapies and care options.

Our inpatient service

Our unique inpatient service allows people to follow a care pathway through assessment, medium secure, low secure and open accommodation.

People will stay for different periods of time, depending on their individual needs.

We are recognised as having one of the best recovery colleges in England - The Discovery Centre.

Our community services

Our Offender Personality Disorder Service supports male offenders who are living with a personality disorder. We’re able to offer a variety of services that can help people make changes in their lives, with an aim to reduce re-offending.

FIND (Forensic service for men with Intellectual and Neurodevelopment Disorders) provides specialist assessment, advice and treatment services for men with intellectual and neurodevelopmental disorders. The service is focused on men who find themselves within - or referred to - forensic services because of a perceived risk of future violent or aggressive behaviour.

Across the South West

Devon Partnership NHS Trust is leading a network of eight organisations who commission and deliver secure mental health services across the South West to improve mental health services.
  
At any one time, there are about 450 people within the South West that require low or medium secure mental health care. About half of these people are receiving some form of treatment outside the area.  

We aim to bring care closer to home for these people. If they have required care elsewhere, we want to return them to the area more quickly. We want to develop more alternatives to hospital admission and step-down options. Together we want to make the mental health care system more efficient and effective in the South West.
