Men's Mental Health services

The Men’s Mental Health service was developed to provide appropriate and timely care and treatment at different levels of secure care for men with mental illness within medium, low and non-secure settings, and psychiatric intensive care units (PICU).

The focus of the Men's service is to enhance a patients’ quality of care through focused leadership and delivering a multi-disciplinary approach that empowers patients to achieve maximum autonomy. 

As a specialist provider treatment is offered to patients with the most complex mental health needs and those with enduring mental health, and to address forensic requirements and reduce challenging behaviour. 

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 Specialist Men's service

The Men’s service is divided into four specialist services of Psychosis, Older Adults, Psychiatric Intensive Care Units (PICUs) and Specialist Care delivered across three easily accessible sites.

As a specialist service we are able to offer: Fairbairn (Northampton) the largest medium secure deaf service in the UK. 

For older adults we have the following services:

Cranford (Northampton) - a specialist older adult medium secure service for men aged 55+. One of the only older adult medium secure units in the country.

Berkeley Lodge (Northampton)  - a  step-down rehabilitation service for men aged 55+ that cares for restricted and sectioned patients.

Maldon (Essex) - a slow-stream rehabilitation step-down and rehabilitation service for men aged 55+ to support older males in secure services or those in non-secure and community settings where their care may have broken down.
