An intensive care in-patient ward for service users who need high levels of support for short periods of time as part of their recovery. Jade Ward PICU is an all-male service and has nine beds for patients from across Bedfordshire and Luton. It is designed to offer short, rapid intervention to help people regain a sense of control and order so they can move forward with their recovery. This may be to a general adult mental health setting or it could be returning to their own home.
