Mental illness group goes into administration

St Luke's Healthcare, which treatsand looks after adults and adolescents with mental health problems and brain injuries, has gone into administration.

The director-owned grouphad recently been looking to revive plans to sell out to private equity, a move that has been abandoned twice due to the credit crunch and subsequent economic downturn. Last year it had hoped to get £100m for its 14 facilities in London, Essex, Hampshire and South Wales.
