Willow Grove Adolescent Unit is a 14 bed inpatient facility that caters for young people between the ages of 12-17 years who are experiencing mental health difficulties.
In accordance with national and international best practice and the regulations and Code of Practice of the Mental Health Commission, Willow Grove is completely separate and distinct from adult units at the Hospital.
What we Treat

These difficulties may take the form of;
- Mood Disorders such as Depression

- or just finding the experience of day to day living hard.
We are a national service and accept referrals from CAHMS teams and GPs.
