Milestones is a 10-bed women-only hospital in Norfolk with a unique mental health philosophy. It offers individualised, bespoke care that combines outstanding clinical treatment with holistic wellbeing, a familial environment and a high staff-patient ratio.
We are proud of our holistic and bespoke hospital. We respect, promote and meet, wherever possible, the assessed needs of each and every person we work with. Treating people as an individual means they feel safe and valued - and they can thrive and move forward on their journey to recovery.
Milestones is a realistic alternative to traditional locked units. The hospital treats and supports women with complex, challenging and severe mental illness who require treatment under the Mental Health Act.
Many of these women may have struggled to flourish within mainstream mental health or forensic services and now require a more personalised approach.
Milestones also provides a safe, supportive and therapeutic environment for young women in transition from CAMHS to adult services.
We are dedicated to providing tailor-made care to women with challenging disorders who have fared less well in mainstream psychiatric settings.
The holistic, healthy-living and familial environment provides a realistic alternative to traditional low-secure settings. It offers a therapeutic and nurturing milieu and has a high success rate of supporting individuals to achieve and maximise their life potential.
We believe healing should occur in the physical, spiritual, emotional and psychological spheres combined.
Milestones integrates traditional medical treatment with individualised occupational and wellbeing therapies. All care packages are developed in consultation with the patient to ensure their individual needs are respected and valued. A high staff ratio enables this personalised approach.
Patients receive personalised and intensive, high-quality psychiatric, psychological,occupational therapy and medical services.
They are also offered specialist dietary help, fitness instruction and wellbeing therapies. We can source other bespoke treatments that might be needed, such as family therapy.
Milestones has a new custom-built recovery centre which houses a gym, occupational therapy department and
fully-equipped rehabilitation kitchen.
The aim of Milestones is to not only treat the condition but to equip individuals with the tools needed to become
self-confident and empowered to move forward to a better life.
