Kent and Medway Adolescent Hospital
The Kent and Medway Adolescent Hospital (KMAH) is our first inpatient mental health unit for children and young people in Kent and Medway.
We took over the unit and the care for patients on 1 April 2020 which means we’re able to provide more comprehensive care for some of our patients who we’re already treating as out-patients or in the community. Our aim is that, by having a single NHS provider for community, out-patient and in-patient mental health services for children and young people in Kent and Medway, we can offer more joined up services for our patients too.
About the unit
At KMAH we provide in-patient mental health support and care for up to 14 patients. Our specially trained team care for our patients every day, and support their treatment and recovery through a number of activities which we host on site.
