Make an enquiry about our female mental health servicesIf someone you care about has received a mental health diagnosis, supporting a friend or relative can be a difficult and isolating experience, especially when residential hospital care or intensive mental health rehabilitation programmes have been advised.

At Lighthouse, we offer a range of mental health rehabilitation treatments on a women-only basis providing tailored services to patients who have been diagnosed with complex mental health problems such as depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or a personality disorder.

All Lighthouse mental health hospital services fully comply with government requirements around Eliminating Mixed Sex Accommodation (EMSA). This promotes dignity, privacy and the safeguarding of vulnerable individuals. 

We ensure that mental health support, treatment and rehabilitation programmes can be delivered effectively in a gender-specific manner which improves understanding and effectiveness of the rehabilitation treatments offered.
