Our core purpose is to work with people and lead communities in improving their mental and physical health and wellbeing for a better life; through delivering excellent and responsive prevention, diagnosis, early intervention, treatment and care.
Experiencing a mental illness does not mean the end of living a full and meaningful life. Our rehabilitation services strive to deliver a wide and varied range of treatments and care with a primary focus on social inclusion and recovery.
The rehabilitation teams aim to provide services that will help you feel that, with support, you can work out coping strategies to deal with any difficulties and gain a sense of control over your life.
Rehabilitation is achieved with support from our Occupational Therapy staff, who adopt a holistic and problem-solving approach to your recovery. This involves using activities as a therapy to help you gain the ability to develop to the highest level of independence.
Our rehabilitation services are based at two locations on our Kingsway Hospital site in Derby:
Audrey House is a modern 10-bed inpatient service covering both Derby city and Derbyshire county. It provides rehabilitation programmes in a community setting for individuals who have been referred from other hospital settings and the community.
The aim of the team at Audrey House is to allow and support individuals to live outside hospital and reach their full potential within a community setting. All residents are actively involved in their care plans.
The team are dedicated to providing a high-quality service with a caring, person-centred approach.

The team at Cherry Tree come from a range of professional backgrounds and provide high-quality, person-centred care. They use a well-researched recovery model.
