By adopting the concept of recovery and a person centred approach, patients are rehabilitated to their optimum level of functioning.
Support and treatment is designed to:
- Assess diagnosis and formulate appropriate treatment options.
- Achieve and demonstrate reduction in symptomology and risk behaviours.
- Maintain and promote mental health, physical health and well-being.
- Promote the development of both social and adaptive skills leading towards independence, recovery and autonomy.
- Provide teaching and information to promote insight, coping strategies and relapse prevention strategies.
Recovery is an active process. The team work with patients to enable them to adapt to living with their mental health, and as part of this, work collaboratively with patients and their families to instil and maintain hope.
New Hall provides an environment in which patients are involved in all aspects of their support, as well as providing a positive, therapeutic placement with quality treatment interventions delivered as determined on an individual needs basis.
This will be achieved through therapeutic engagement, individually or in group settings, and utilising all resources. Additionally, New Hall focuses on discharge at the point of admission, with identified milestones to ensure the length of stay is kept to a minimum. The average length of stay is 18 months.
