Brenin Unit has 12 female bedrooms. Young people are encouraged to bring photographs or posters that will help give their bedrooms a personalised feel and support their recovery.
The unit is specifically designed for adolescents and this is reinforced by the décor and facilities. Brenin ward is set in Hillview hospital which is located just behind the town centre of Ebbw Vale. We have designed a number of our spaces onsite to create a young, funky feel housing two cinema rooms, two salons, a fitness suite, three sensory rooms and two chill out rooms across the site. Young people can also access art and craft, education and music areas.
Community engagement and social inclusion are easily facilitated due to the location of the hospital. The hospital only accepts those who are detained under the Mental Health Act. All young people are informed of their rights upon admission and this is discussed monthly.
