Cygnet Lodge Kenton, in North-West London, is a female high support inpatient rehabilitation (level 2) service that provides a care pathway for service users who are preparing to step down and help bridge the gap between hospital stays and community living. Our service provides a high level of support and uses a recovery focused model.

Cygnet Lodge Kenton provides treatment for up to 15 women experiencing complex mental illness. The service helps them to re-establish and develop the skills they need to progress over a period of 12-18 months. We accept referrals from low secure services, acute wards, PICU and other mental health rehabilitation services.

Cygnet Lodge Kenton is AIMS accredited with the Royal College of Psychiatrists. The AIMS (Accreditation of Inpatient Mental Health Services) rehabilitation project is a national scheme developed to ensure best practice is being achieved in inpatient mental health services.

Our service is particularly helpful for women who have been in hospital for some time and who require additional support as they continue along their pathway towards the least restrictive environment possible for them.

Our main focus is to give women the skills and confidence to enable them to live independently in the community. The occupational therapy team is key in assuring as many activities as possible are held in the community, helping people re-integrate and prepare most effectively for discharge.

The service has strong links with local community-based services within Kenton and Harrow, with many service users taking part in work experience opportunities and educational and other courses which are run in the area.

Our service provides a high level of individualised care; including a Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) assessment, care plan formulation and management, followed by pharmacological, therapeutic interventions (Psychology and Occupational Therapy) to enable them to integrate safely into the community. All treatment plans and interventions are in accordance with NICE guidelines and evidence-based practice. The service also offers sessional therapists for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, drama and music therapy and yoga.
