Children and Young Peoples' Mental Health Service (CYPMHS) inpatient unit for West Yorkshire

Information for parents and carers

Little Woodhouse Hall is our current inpatient unit for children and young people in Leeds and West Yorkshire.  We are building a new inpatient unit called Red Kite View which will open in December.

The inpatient unit aims to provide a warm and friendly therapeutic environment which will support children and young people on their journey to recovery.  We provide a range of creative therapies and activities alongside an integrated school unit to make sure that no-one feels left behind with their school work while they are here.

We have flexible visiting times, however we do ask that visitors do not come during school hours or times when you’re in therapy sessions.

We ask that each young person has no more than 4 visitors at one time as we do not have the facilities to deal with greater numbers.  We do understand that some young people have big families and we try to be flexible, especially around special occasions.  Please be considerate of other young people on the unit.

Any visitors under 18 must be supervised by an adult, ideally a parent, but this can be anybody familiar to you who is over the age of 18. This includes visits by your boyfriend or girlfriend.

Due to the current COVID restrictions, visiting is restricted to our downstairs rooms and all visitors are required to wear a face mask.
