Inpatient Services - Upton House - Content

These services provide voluntary and involuntary short-term inpatient management during an acute phase of mental illness until sufficient recovery allows the person to be treated effectively in a community-based setting.

Sometimes people need to be cared for in hospital. Acute inpatient units provide treatment for people with a serious mental illness on a short-term basis. Many of these units are located with acute general hospitals. These services provide short-term, inpatient treatment and support until people are well enough for effective, community-based treatment. Prior to being admitted to an inpatient service, people are assessed by a CAT service member.
