A new multimillion pound acute mental health inpatient unit has opened in Derry.

Grangewood, a 30 bed crisis unit at Gransha, will provide inpatient acute mental health care, alongside a 24 hour, seven days a week crisis response and home treatment service.

The £10.4million unit was officially opened yesterday.

Chairman of the Western Trust, Gerard Guckian said the “new facility marks another step in the long term plans for mental health services” across the Trust.

“It has been designed in conjunction with service users and carers to make sure it meets their needs.

“I would like to thank them for the very important part they have played in the design of the unit. Their contribution has helped the Trust provide first class accommodation and a therapeutic environment to aid recovery for some of our most vulnerable clients,” he said.
