Forensic Residential Unit

Garrow House (Female)

Run by Northern Pathways, a joint venture between Turning Point and The Retreat, its aim is to help manage the transition from secure mental health services back into the community.

Garrow House is a 12-bed high support service providing a 'step down' facility for women with complex mental health issues coming from medium and low secure services.

The service is designed around their individual needs to empower them as they work through a community based recovery model.

Interventions Used

  • Psycho-educational groups and 1-1 sessions.
  • Activities designed to help develop life, employability and social skills.
  • Complementary therapies.
  • Encouragement and support to work toward independent living.
  • A dedicated Involvement worker who maximises benefit by discussing treatment openly and honestly.

Accessing the service

We can only accept referrals through the secure services commissioning team.
