More Information

Rowanbank Clinic is a mental health secure care centre on the Stobhill site.

The first patients were admitted to Rowanbank Clinic during July 2007. The 74 bed centre became fully operational on a phased basis over the next 18 months.

This facility improves services for adults with mental health problems who may pose a risk to others or have the potential to commit an offence because they are unwell. It provides specialist treatment and support in modern, purpose-built accommodation designed to meet the specific needs of patients and staff.

A carers support group has been set up to provide information and support for family and friends of service users who use forensic services. The group’s purpose is to provide time, space and much needed support just for family and friends.

Adult mental health - secure care
Unlike other mental health hospitals where the average length of stay is around six weeks, patients at Rowanbank Clinic will normally spend around three years undergoing treatment and rehabilitation before they are transferred to another hospital or discharged. It is therefore vital that patients have access to the specialist care and treatment they require to give them the best possible chances of recovery.

Patients have access to a range of general health services along with specialist mental health services delivered by psychiatric nurses, occupational therapists, clinical forensic psychologists, social work and forensic psychiatrists which will include:

  • treatment for mental illness (including access to drug, psychological and behavioural therapies and counselling)
  • rehabilitation (including individual and group therapy, education, training, occupational therapy)
  • health improvement (including opportunities for physical exercise)
Although providing drug and therapeutic treatment is obviously important, making sure patients are equipped with the practical skills and experience to help them cope after they are discharged is also vital. They need access to a range of facilities and activities as part of their overall treatment programme. Rowanbank is equipped with a number of recreational and therapeutic facilities including an IT learning centre, therapy kitchen and access to arts and crafts and gardening projects. As patients spend the majority of their time inside the building, they need access to exercise facilities. This not only improves their overall physical health but will boost mental health: regular exercise has been shown to reduce levels of stress, anxiety and symptoms of depression. Rowanbank Clinic has a sports hall, gym and a five a side football pitch.
