Rowan 1 Ward

We provide inpatient care for men experiencing an acute mental health crisis who cannot be supported in their own home.

The service focuses on assessment of need, treatment, and recovery and places the service user at the centre of care planning.

Care is provided by a wide range of professionals, including doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, psychologists, and support workers.

The service is for men aged between 18 - 65 and patients over 65 who have already been accessing mental health services may also be referred.


Accessing our services

Admissions to Rowan 1 Ward are agreed by the bed manager working in the crisis team in the city or county south. Patients will be admitted if our ward is felt to be the most safe and effective way to care for them.
