WELCOME TO GEDDYN REESHT
“he was proud to be performing the ceremony as the development clearly signifies the Department’s commitment to developing local services, reducing the need for people to be transferred to facilities in the UK.”
Hon W.E. Teare MHK, formerly Minister for the Department of Health and Social Security commented
“that the development of Geddyn Reesht will enable the Mental Health Service to repatriate service users currently placed in UK treatment facilities back to the Isle of Man and in future the number of people requiring transfer off island will be reduced to situations of exceptional circumstance.”
The name Geddyn Reesht was chosen by the Service User Network (SUN) and is defined in Manx Gaelic as “recovering” in the context of regaining or taking back. The service provided at Geddyn Reesht offers treatment programmes based on Recovery for up to 14 in-patients at any one time. One place is assigned for the purposes of respite and one for the purposes of a two week relapse prevention programme.
In order to ensure a smooth transition from Geddyn Reesht to the community, the Rehabilitation and Recovery Service provided an extended community based rehabilitation and support programme for up to six weeks post discharge. The aim is to support service users to the extent that they feel enabled and empowered to lead an independent lifestyle.
