Gellinudd – Recovery Approach


Our service at Gellinudd Recovery Centre is based on our unique Recovery Programme which promotes self-management and a holistic approach to recovery.

Guests identify their recovery goals in a comprehensive Care and Treatment Plan which covers the all of the following life areas:-


In the process, our Guests are empowered to become independent and to overcome the “revolving door” syndrome (a cyclical pattern of short-term readmissions to psychiatric units).

To support progress, Hafal provides “step-up” accommodation and a number of community-based services so that Guests can move on stage-by-stage towards independent living. The recovery focus of our service ensures Guests move on from the service as soon as they are ready, and that they are equipped and supported to continue to work towards recovery.

Most importantly, Gellinudd Recovery Centre is led by the Guests who use it: they meet regularly with staff to direct the service, evaluate it and determine how it should develop.

The Centre has been developed in close liaison with the National Health Service (NHS) in Wales to ensure we provide a service that fits with existing NHS services and that it meets the highest clinical governance standards. Its approach is strongly in line with Welsh law and policy including the Mental Health (Wales) Measure (Welsh law) and the “Together for Health” and “Together for Mental Health” Welsh Government strategies.
