The Willow Grove Adolescent Team believe various factors influence both the process of mental health difficulties and recovery and therefore reflect this in the treatment approach.
Your stay at the Willow Grove will involve attending a variety of activities including school, therapy groups, family meetings, individual sessions and recreational sessions. There will also be free time for activities of your choice.
All young people spend their first weekend in hospital and the Willow Grove staff will work with you to develop a plan about how to spend your days. However, generally at the weekends the routine is much more relaxed as many young people go on overnight leave or else spend time away from Willow Grove with family members.
Spending time away from Willow Grove is dependent on your needs and will be discussed with you before each weekend.
Sometimes at the weekend we arrange to go on outings to the movies, museums, parks etc.
