Brookside is a specialist adolescent psychiatric service for up to 30 teenagers and provides residential, day and outpatient assessment, as well as on-site education and consultation to the wider professional network. The education team also works with a small number of students supported in the community by the Home Treatment Team (HTT).
The majority of students who attend are not Redbridge students. Referrals can only be made by a consultant psychiatrist. The education provision at Brookside is managed through the New Rush Hall Group.
