Acute services

We provide care for adults in an inpatient setting, building on service users'  strengths, maintaining levels of independence and promoting well-being.

Our service is aimed at people who are experiencing an acute psychiatric crisis of such severity that it cannot be managed at home with the involvement and interventions of staff in the community.
