Stream 1 (Adult Group Psychotherapy)
This is a full time, rolling, open group, in which participants engage in a therapeutic mix of daily Group Therapy, Art Therapy, Drama and Mental Health Workshops. This group is most successful for people experiencing clearly identifiable psycho-social stressors for whom a more exploratory and solution focused approach is considered helpful.
Stream 2 (Assessment / Mental Health Education)
This is also a full time, rolling, open group with similar content to that of Stream 1, but with emphasis on monitoring and stabilization of mental state as well as assessment. There is a strong emphasis on mental health education and health promotion in this programme. For people for whom diagnosis is unclear, Stream 2 is considered helpful in assessing overall mental health.
Stream 3 (Acute Psychosis Programme)
Stream 3 focuses on providing a safe place in which to recover from the symptoms of acute psychosis. Activities are less structured and are supportive and encouraging in nature. A low stimuli environment focuses on the needs of individuals rather than groups of people. Groups are limited to 3 people and are specifically small and non-intimidating, in recognition that people may be experiencing distressing symptoms such as suspiciousness, poor concentration and impaired social interaction. Medication support is provided as part of this programme. Stream 3 will also provide a Clozapine initiation service for up to 2 people.
