Springbank ward: Supporting women with personality disorders

Springbank is a 12-bed in-patient recovery unit for women with a diagnosis of borderline personality disorder (BPD) who are struggling to cope with the demands of life outside of hospital, despite the input from community psychiatric services.

Our ward provides an environment that offers 24-hour support with a strong recovery focus. Our aim is to help people improve their resilience against stress and their quality of life. We do this by teaching important skills, such as mindfulness, and offering evidence-based therapies such as Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT).
