Greenacre Ward – Men’s Low Secure

Gender: Male

Age: 18+

Beds: 18

Greenacre Ward is our male low secure service. Men on Greenacre may experience behaviours that are challenging, including self-harm or aggression and may be considered a risk to others or have been involved in the criminal justice system.

Our teams across our secure services support a focus on recovery, reducing the time people have to spend on the ward. Minimising length of stay is a key focus and our secure wards benefit from being part of our integrated pathways of care, which aim to smooth transitions and shorten lengths of stay. These pathways include our neighbouring male mental health rehabilitation service, Cygnet Lodge Woking.


Greenacre Ward provides three core treatment phases:

  1. Assessment in safe and supportive environment
  2. Treatment and engagement
  3. Recovery and rehabilitation

The final pre-discharge stage focuses on recovery and rehabilitation work and includes daily living skills, offence related work and further psychological interventions. In this phase service users make significant use of community placements and services.

We use a model of treatment based on the principles of the recovery model of care including psychological therapies, occupational therapy, social therapy, physical healthcare and medication. Risk assessment tools are used and a clinical formulation is developed to inform the management plans for each patient.

Our Psychology Department undertakes specialist psychological assessments, including personality, risk and neuropsychological assessments. They also provide individual, group and family interventions. A range of evidencebased therapeutic approaches are offered, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment, motivational interviewing, solution focused approaches and family work.

Our Facilities:

  • En-suite bedrooms
  • Outdoor space
  • Social areas
  • ADL kitchen
