Potters Bar Clinic Transitional service for young women with Personality Disorders offers a continuum to the pathway from CAMHS to improve the transition period through services to independence.
Our 12 bedded unit offers a transitional service for specialist care that is specifically designed to support young women aged 18 to 25 who have a diagnosis of an emerging or personality disorder.
The focus of the service is to enable the young women to work on ways to decrease harmful behaviours and replace them with effective strategies to enhance their lives and help them reach their personal life goals.
Our expert multidisciplinary team provide person-centred care that is specifically designed to support the needs of those affected by personality disorder. Our team deliver a Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) Milieu that focuses on the four core skill areas, mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulations and interpersonal effectiveness. Through the practice of DBT we aim to equip the young women with coping skills that will increase resilience, reduce self-injury and enable them to monitor, regulate and manage their emotions.
