Crisis Support

We provide a 24 hour service in South Devon to support people who are reaching a crisis point with their mental health. Cypress Hospital and Granvue are short-stay open units for people to receive care and recover from a mental health crisis.

The majority of this service is commissioned through South Devon and Torbay CCG.

Cypress Hospital is a short stay, open unit for people who are in or recovering from a mental health crisis. Our dedicated team provides nurse-led support which helps to avoid the need for acute ward admissions and supports people to transition from an acute ward back into their community.

Our building in Newton Abbot has been specially renovated to support recovery and wellbeing.

  • Part of the NHS acute care pathway
  • 14 en-suite bedrooms
  • Designated single-sex areas
  • Individual support plans
  • Weekly medical reviews
  • Family and carer involvement

This service is available for people who have been discharged from acute mental health units but still require a level of hospital care and support, or who are in crisis but do not need acute inpatient care. We consider referrals through crisis resolution home treatment teams and acute wards – for further information or for confidential enquiries please contact cypress.s1@nhs.net.

For those who need further support after a stay at our crisis hospital, Granvue can provide an additional stay of 2-4 weeks to support further with independent living skills or whilst they await a package of support in the community. Our occupational therapist and occupational therapy assistant deliver a programme of wellbeing and self-management groups.

Working with crisis resolution home treatment teams, recovery co-ordinators, other medical professionals and a local pharmacist we empower people with confidence, coping skills, hope and self-awareness to manage their mental health.
