Welcome to The Junction

The Junction is an 10 bedded inpatient service for young people between the ages of 13 and 18 years. It is a planned treatment service (can take same day admissions but not out of hours) which supports young people with severe mental health issues who can no longer be safely and effectively managed in their own home/community setting and need a specialist inpatient service.

The Service provides a wide range of psychological, medical and social interventions from an experienced Multidisciplinary team which includes Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Nurses, Occupational Therapist, Psychodynamic Therapist, Family Therapist, Dietician and Social Worker.

Young people and families are actively encouraged to participate in their care planning and work in collaboration with the team, whilst supported by our participation workers and our independent advocate.

The service also provides on-site education, provided by Lancashire County Council.

Where do we provide this service?
The Service is situated in Lancaster and our current catchment area covers the whole of Lancashire and South Cumbria.
