About Valley House
Valley House is a service for children and young people whose complex mental health needs might have required them to stay in hospital in the past, or rendered them “difficult to place”.
Our emphasis is on relationship based practice in a therapeutic environment, supported by both our Consultant Psychiatrist and in-house Clinical Psychologist.
