Cygnet Health Care has been providing a national network of high quality specialist mental health services for 30 years.

The aim on Bowling Ward is to support service users with highly complex problems to learn how to have good emotional management, to reduce problems with emotional dysregulation and those associated with a diagnosis of emotionally unstable personality disorder.

The service also aims to help people manage their mental health and facilitate recovery. This is a service which delivers evidence based treatment to effectively support women with a significant history of trauma. The ward can support detained and informal service users via individualized risk assessment and management.

Care on Bowling is underpinned by a comprehensive Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) programme. DBT is has a robust evidence-base for treating problems associated with a diagnosis of Borderline/Emotionally unstable Personality Disorder. Furthermore, DBT is recommended by NICE (2009) for reducing self-harm behaviours. Whilst this is a rehabilitation service, it is highly specialised in terms of the programme it runs.

Cygnet Healthcare has a clear nursing strategy which has been developed by front line staff. Our clinical care is underpinned by strong values and we have a commitment to reducing restrictive practice.
