A mental health facility is due to open in autumn 2016 and hopes to be a fast track rehabilitation service for people with complex needs.
Plans to build a new £6m treatment and recovery centre in Manchester have been revealed. It will be built in Ardwick and be run by Alternative Futures Group, reports the Manchester Evening News.
Chief Executive of AFG, Neil Campbell, has said the new 24 bed centre will be a fast track rehabilitation service for people with complex needs.
“This exciting new development is to help people in Manchester who are experiencing mental health problems,” he said.
“We already have a strong track record of supporting people in the city giving them the ability to exercise choice and control in their recovery in an environment designed to optimise their health and wellbeing. Our added value is providing a link to our community services to further help people when they have finished their treatment to reclaim their lives.”
Councillor Bernard Priest, deputy leader of Manchester Council, said: “Alternative Futures Group has an excellent reputation of delivering positive outcomes for people it already supports in Manchester. This new state of the art facility combined with AFG’s clinical expertise, will help address demand for mental health support in the region. It will deliver high quality care for people with complex needs allowing them to be rehabilitated back into the community.”
