“I will be forever grateful to the staff at The Mount”

“I arrived at the Mount severely depressed. I was gently but expertly nursed back to health”

“If a member of your family goes into the Mount, the experience at first will be unsettling even distressing but it is a remarkable place for getting your loved ones in a better place mentally, so do not worry put your faith and trust into the expert staff and you too will have a positive result in the end”

We have had many staff retire of late, but they can’t stay away! And return to work on the bank for us, one staff nurse told us this is because;

“The team are welcoming, forward thinking and passionate about what they do and the care they give. Person centred care is at the heart of all they do”

The dedicated team at The Mount provides excellent support, and care services, and our commitment to the continued delivery of this care is reinforced by many compliments received:-

“Thanks to all the staff at the Mount for the fantastic care and support given to me and to my family over the last few months. I don’t know how I would have managed without the care on the ward. I will be for ever grateful and will keep in touch with the staff at the Mount.”

This is no isolated case, we have many more inspiring stories to share. The treatment offered at The Mount comprises of a multi-disciplinary approach with a broad range of interventions delivered by a team of nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists, occupational therapists, social workers and other therapists.
