The Retreat is a charitable, not-for-profit provider of specialist mental health care. We work closely with the NHS to provide services for people with complex and challenging needs in an open, calming environment designed to enable recovery and independence. The Retreat was established over 200 years ago and was the first place where people with mental health problems were treated humanely and with dignity and respect.
We are very proud of our long-standing reputation for excellence and for providing care and treatment of the highest quality. The Retreat believes that successful therapeutic relationships are based on respect, dignity and tolerance and ensures the voice of the people who use its services along with their friends, families and carers are given every opportunity to be heard.
