Llanarth Court

Llanarth Court is a specialist hospital providing medium and low secure care for men and women with mental illness and/or personality disorder and for men with intellectual/learning disability. We also have a 4 bedded open rehabilitation bungalow. We are a sector-leading example of how providing a wide variety of care settings and a clear care pathway in the direction of recovery, can be achieved for all patients.

Our approach

With occupational therapy, we aim to help people engage in occupations, which give their lives meaning and value. This also helps to mitigate alienation and anti-social behaviour, assisting people to develop their interpersonal capacity, pro-social values, personal identity and skills for life participation.

The provision of occupational therapy is a central part of the care provided throughout Llanarth Court Hospital enabling patients to choice to engage in a range of occupations that have meaning and purpose that are necessary for quality of life.

Llanarth Court runs a 12-week rotational therapeutic programme to help patients develop coping strategies, insight and self-management of risk both independently and with support. Programmes are repeated as required for individual need. They include:

  • Mental awareness health groups
  • Medication awareness groups
  • Physical healthcare
  • Individualised therapy
  • Substance awareness programme
  • Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT)
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for managing difficult emotions programme
  • Mentalisation Based therapy (MBT)

We believe the environment in which treatment takes place, is as important as the therapy itself. Llanarth Court provides:

Fitness and leisure

  • Swimming pool
  • Sports hall
  • Fitness suite

Therapeutic areas

  • Art rooms
  • Practice kitchens
  • Vast amount of grounds, access to green space
  • Social club
  • Shop

Vocational and educational facilities

  • Horticulture and craft centre (woodwork, carpentry, horticulture)
  • Education room
  • Patient run coffee shop

Occupational therapists have an important role in identifying those occupations associated with, or leading up to, offending behaviour and equally, within the recovery approach where occupational therapy plays a part in supporting and instilling hope for patients’ goals and aspirations.

The therapy department support individuals to retain and learn new skills that support their daily living with an emphasis upon community reintegration and developing a graded programme for supporting patients back into the community.

Vocational rehabilitation plays an important role in supporting patients to establish meaningful and productive roles. The facilities at Llanarth support this, offering a wide range of activities in a number of different therapeutic environments.
