Men's Mental Health services

Our Men's Mental Health services offer a specialist inpatient pathway of care from medium and low secure services to specialist rehabilitation and transitional community living houses, as well as acute and psychiatric intensive care units for men with mental illness. 

The aim of the services are to provide appropriate, safe and timely care, which enables patients to find hope and develop the skills needed to transform their lives. We aim to deliver care in the least restrictive environment possible and apply a positive risk-testing approach to allow patients to build their skills and move through the pathway and into independent community living as quickly as possible.

The services delivers quality of care through focused leadership and a multi-functional clinical team that empowers patients to achieve independence and live well with their mental illness.

Specialist interventions are offered throughout the pathway to support those with complex and enduring mental health needs and those with forensic considerations. 

We believe all patients should be treated with dignity and respect and cared for in the most suitable and least restrictive environment to address their clinical needs and risks. Our Transitional Living Houses offer 24/7 nursing in a house environment in the community, adjacent to St Andrew's main hospital site in Northampton. They allow patients to test their skills, supported by a specialist clinical team before moving into supported living accommodation in their home area.

Our Men's Mental Health services are situated in Northampton, Birmingham and Essex. They include a specialist Deaf mental health health service and Older Adult services which each tailor care to meet the specific needs of this patient cohort. Our secure services in Northampton and Birmingham are part of IMPACT (The East Midland's Adult Provider Collaborative) and REACH OUT (The West Midland's Adult Provider Collaborative) which allows St Andrew's to work with other NHS and independent providers to offer appropriate care closer to home and reduce mental health inpatient hospital stay,
