Brynawel is a five-bedded enhanced community home that provides community focused rehabilitation and recovery support, treatment and therapy for males and females diagnosed with complex mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or schizoaffective disorder.
Our aim is to offer mental health support and help individuals gain confidence and build independence in order to improve their quality of life.
The facility works collaboratively with the individual, care co-ordinators and commissioning teams to provide person-centred, recovery-focused support programmes that are effective, realistic, specific to need, and achieve the best possible outcomes.
We have an excellent reputation of working with individuals with complex needs and supporting them in stepping down from hospital-based care to living in the community. We provide 24-hour staff support and benefit from an extensive multidisciplinary team.
All bedrooms are spacious, well-furnished and individually personalised. Communal areas include:
- A kitchen

All areas are tastefully decorated to provide a comfortable and homely living environment.
The unit is led by an effective multidisciplinary team, experienced in rehabilitation, recovery and caring for individuals with complex needs. The team includes:
- Consultant psychiatrists

The team also benefits from a progressive training programme towards achieving NVQ standards. The staff team are all trained to at least NVQ II and III.
