Linn Dara is a Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMHS) Inpatient Unit for young people under the age of 18.
It consists of two 11 bedded Units, Hazel and Rowan and a two bedded high observation unit called Oak. Each young person has their own ensuite bedroom. Linn Dara is an open Unit.
Linn Dara works with young people who are struggling with their mental health, they may have become isolated or are finding it hard to cope with everyday life.
Mental health difficulties can present with many symptoms including anxiety, depression, psychosis and eating difficulties. However sometimes young people come to Linn Dara because it is not known what the problem is.
The Unit is set up to be a supportive, structured and therapeutic environment.
Linn Dara is registered by the Mental Health Commission as an “Approved centre”
In simple terms, this means that we can provide care and treatment in an inpatient unit that is approved and that meets nationally defined criteria.
Linn Dara is subject to annual inspection and regulations. Our annual inspection report is available to view at www.mhcirl.ie
Linn Dara is also part of a peer review accreditation forum known as QNIC.
