The Willows - Mental Health Intensive Care Unit

We provide intensive care for male patients whose needs and risks are unable to be safely managed on an acute inpatient ward. Our patients are detained under the Mental Health Act.

We focus on assessment, treatment and recovery. Care is provided by a range of healthcare professionals including:

  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Occupational therapists
  • Psychologists
  • Support workers

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

Referrals are usually made to The Willows when a patient from an acute ward needs intensive care. However, referrals can also be made from a community setting.
