"Therapy suite, Becklin Centre"

About: Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust / Healthy living service Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust / Inpatient mental health care

(as the patient),

I used the computer room, gym, ceramics and music session during a brief stay in acute inpatient psychiatry.

The therapy suite provides an excellent service. All staff treat you like a normal person (not a mad person!).

The service of the therapy suite helps people to rediscover their strengths and resources and make a new start after a mental breakdown.

I regard it as the best and most helpful part of the inpatient psychiatry experience.
