Weekends
Your plans for the weekend are discussed on a Friday, together with clinical staff and the patient group.  

Weekends are generally less structured, although start with a meeting on Saturday morning.  Meal and medication times remain the same as they are during the week.  

Public Holidays
The normal programme doesn't operate on public holidays, and there are no individual sessions with Psychiatrists/Therapists.  

At Christmas we put on a special lunch, and some activities will be organised for those who remain on-site.  The patient group is encouraged to organise day trips etc.  These are usually put together alongside a calendar of events.  This is generally how things work at Easter, too.

*Please note that this programme is subject to change.
