Townsend Court is an 18 bedded acute female inpatient service providing 24 hour treatment and care in a safe and therapeutic place, actively engaging and involving people who are experiencing an acute mental health episode which cannot be managed in a less restrictive setting, owing to the degree of risk, clinical need or patient choice.
