The Holford Ward Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) provides psychiatric intensive care beds for the inpatient population of Somerset, although there is provision to accept service users from prison and other mental health services.
Holford Ward provides assessment and intensive acute treatment for detained individuals in the most disturbed phase of their mental illness, whose capacity for self-control and associated risks cannot be therapeutically managed on a general open acute ward.
These services are accessed through the Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Team and other inpatient wards.
