Successful open day at Bruce Grove A successful open day was held on 15 March at the service St Martins will soon be opening in Bruce Grove, north London. It was well attended by local care teams, social workers, placement officers and a few senior people from mental health trusts and commissioning bodies. The new service has ten bedrooms and will be managed by an experienced staff team. St Martins is in negotiation with local commissioners as to the exact client group that will be moving in. But what can be said at this stage is that the service will support people with complex mental health needs to gain a foothold in the community and take positive steps in their journeys of recovery.
