Welcome to Mellieha

Mellieha is specialist residential home providing support for people living with complex conditions such as autism, dementia, learning disabilities, attachment disorders, Schizophrenia, and varying degrees of mental health conditions.

Inside the home there are five large bedrooms, each with a private bathroom, as well as a large games room, a shared dining room, living room, kitchen, and sensory garden.

Part of the Mellieha community are a further two specialist residential homes – Elmswell and Oakwell, which altogether provide support for 15 adults.

Here, we provide specialist Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). Our DBT Champions will work with you and provide person-centered support that enables you to cope with and accept change and learn how to manage behaviours and thoughts that can create negative feelings.

On site at Mellieha, every manager is trained in DBT and has a very strong understanding of how this therapy works and how it can benefit people receiving support, and the rest of the team, too.
