Inpatient care services

We provide a wide range of services at 2 hospital sites for people who need support and care for mental health problems or a mental health crisis.

Our inpatient care units are supportive and safe environments, where we focus on the needs of each individual to help them get well. Our aim is to promote their recovery and social inclusion.

We work closely with external organisations who are there to support service users on their journey to recovery. These might be statutory agencies, or non-statutory agencies, like the mental health charity MIND.
