Overview of our services at Nightingale Hospital

Mental health disorders take many different forms, affecting the way you behave, feel and think. Undertaking mental health treatment and therapy can be confusing and overwhelming and we understand you may feel anxious, upset and fearful. We offer an extensive number of evidence-based therapy treatments to help you address your problems and difficult feelings.

Aftercare and ongoing support

To help with the transition from an inpatient to life outside the hospital, we provide free groups for one year following the conclusion of inpatient treatment and day therapy programmes.

Existing aftercare members are incredibly friendly and welcoming of new faces. It can be very useful to people resuming their everyday activities and responsibilities, such as work and socialising, to get support from other members who are going through or have gone through similar experiences.

Attendance is open to all patients, who have been discharged from inpatient or day-patient therapy at Nightingale within the last year.
