Welcome to Cove Care – Transitions (CCT) 

CCT is a truly unique service, delivering specialist residential services for young people, aged 16-25 years,  with clear, or suspected, mental health needs.

Dear colleagues, myself and Beverly Cyrus, co-founders and directors, each have over 20 years experience working with these young people. As mental health nurses with an extensive range of additional psychotherapy and psychological trainings, we have proven track records through front-line, management, clinical specialist and consultancy roles within in-patient Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).  

Setting up CCT, our goal was ambitious, but simple: to fill the gap in the sector with quality placements for young people, who may require the following specialist residential mental health provision:


  • ‘Step Down Transitions’: skilled support, recovery and rehabilitation in the community following in-patient treatment

  • ‘Step Up Transitions’: specialist mental health provision from the generic residential / care sector

  • Step Across Transitions’: effective, safe alternative to an in-patient admission.
