Exploring Mental Health Inpatient Capacity

The pressure on mental health inpatient services in England is growing, and the impact of this pressure on people who use these services and on clinical staff cannot be underestimated. Staff working in mental health units want to deliver safe and effective services for patients, but these aims are severely challenged when wards are fully occupied. The use of inappropriate out of area placements means that individuals are separated from their families and social networks for the duration of their inpatient care. Of even more concern is that people who have received inpatient care out of area have a higher risk of suicide when they return home than those who are treated locally.
