Ty Cwm Rhondda is a 20-bedded low secure mental health facility offering high-quality assessment, treatment and rehabilitation services for men with complex mental health needs, serious mental illness including treatment-resistant presentations, and challenging behaviour.
We aim to support patients with the highest standards of treatment and facilities. We welcome patients stepping down from a higher level of security or from the criminal justice system.
We provide an out of hours team who are able to deal with emergency admissions, to support those in the most need of care. Many staff have worked here for almost 10 years. The team have an excellent understanding of our patients and develop professional, therapeutic and purposeful relationships that nurture a safe and effective environment.
Our 12-week Care Planning process supports patients to prioritise their goals and formulate treatment plans to meet their individual needs and recovery. Care Planning is being developed further to adopt a Positive Behaviour Support model, helping patients gain more insight and recognise triggers for their behaviours with the aim of managing more effectively.
We expect continued involvement and engagement with local services at every stage of the patient’s pathway. This is particularly important in relation to risk reduction, rehabilitation, social integration and discharge planning.
Staff Training is central to our service development and we exceed contractual obligations for both NHE England and NHS Wales.
