Sapphire Lodge

Welcome to Sapphire Lodge at the Becton Centre where we have places for 19 young people (14 residents and five day-attenders) aged 14-18 who are experiencing emotional and behavioural difficulties.

We are an open adolescent unit offering mental health care for adolescents with a serious mental illness, who require hospital admission.

We have developed a national and international reputation for innovation and pioneered the introduction of a comprehensive, all hours emergency admission service.

A large number of the young people we treat come to us via emergency admissions, however planned admissions can also be arranged. Admissions are accepted 365 days a year, including admissions under the Mental Health Act.

Saphire sees patients experiencing difficulties including:

  • mood

  • or where there is diagnostic uncertainty.

Epic Friends

The Sheffield CAMHS team developed the Epic Friends website to help young people who think their friends may have mental health problems.

The site offers advice on a range of issues including bullying, depression, anxiety, family problems, self-harm and eating disorders. It also offers guidance on when to seek help and where to go for further support.

Epic Friends was funded by The Children’s Hospital Charity.
