Mental Health Services

In 2018, Nua Healthcare expanded into Mental Health Services with a brand new state-of-the-art Specialist Rehabilitation Unit in Meelin, County Cork called Cois Dalua.

On June 1st, 2018, Cois Dalua Specialist Rehabilitation Unit (SRU) achieved registration status and will now enter the Register of "Approved Centres" in accordance with Section 64 of the Mental Health Act 2001. Cois Dalua SRU will operate in accordance with the MHC Judgement Support Framework incorporating the requirements of the Mental Health Act 2001 (Approved Centres) Regulations 2006 (the Regulations).

Nua Healthcare's Mental Health Service (MHS) aims to deliver excellent outcomes for the Patients and/or Residents we care for and support. In doing so, Nua Healthcare's MHS adopts the Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP) approach to rehabilitation which recognises the unique recovery journey that each Resident and/or Patient we support will make.

In delivering recovery focused outcomes, we comply with all provisions made within both Irish and European legislation and at a local level, all relevant National Standards, Nua Healthcare's MHS Policies and Procedures and where relevant, National Policies and Guidance on Best Practice.

Nua Healthcare’s multidisciplinary team work with each Patient and Resident on an individual basis to develop their own Individual Care Plan (ICP), which reflect their needs, goals and aspirations.

Cois Dalua benefits from having access to excellent multidisciplinary team (MDT) support, comprising of but not limited to; 

  • Psychiatry
  • Psychology
  • Nursing [Psychiatric, ID and General]
  • Dieticians
  • Counselling
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Speech & Language Therapy
  • Psychotherapy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Behavioural Services

Nua Healthcare is proud to offer high standards of service and care since the organisation’s establishment in 2004. Our multidisciplinary team bring a wealth of experience and knowledge in supporting individuals with a range of complex needs including;

  • Complex Adult Mental Health
  • Mental Health Rehabilitation and Recovery
  • Mental Health Care for People with Intellectual Disabilities
  • Continuing Mental Health Care / Long-stay
  • Forensic Rehabilitation and Recovery
  • Psychiatry of Later Life

Each Resident and Patient of Nua Healthcare's MHS receives expert Psychiatry and Psychology led care. On an individual needs basis, any combination of additional MDT inputs may augment a comprehensive Individual Care Plan (ICP).  The MDT implement an individualised therapeutic plan for each Resident and Patient. It is highly flexible and allows the team to alternate between intensive high relational support with a less intensive mentorship model, as required.

It is our aim that all Patients and Residents are supported to move on from the Cois Dalua SRU within a two-year timeframe. Nua Healthcare’s MHS, if required, will provide all necessary ongoing support and assistance each person may need on their individual journey towards continued recovery.
