Jade Ward PICU (Luton)
An intensive care inpatient ward for service users who need high levels of support for short periods of time as part of their recovery.
Jade Ward PICU (psychiatric intensive care unit) 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.
