If you are struggling with your mental health and have a mental illness which is serious and necessary for you to receive treatment in hospital, you could be admitted to one of our four mental health wards.
If you have been admitted to hospital, it could be because you have a severe mental illness and a hospital stay is necessary for your health and safety, and / or the protection of other people.
When you are admitted to our Mental Health Inpatient Wards you can expect to be supported by a Multi-Disciplinary Team led by a Psychiatrist, Psychiatric Nurses, Health Care Support Workers, Occupational Therapists and you may also receive input from Psychology, Home Treatment and Pharmacy staff.
Hospital admission is by referral only. Referrals can be made from Community Mental Health Teams, Police, Crisis Resolution Home Treatment Teams, GPs, Allied Health professionals, and social services colleagues working in Mental Health.
Our inpatient wards are open 24/7, 365 days a year.
Here in Powys we have one 18 – 64 adult admissions unit in Bronllys Hospital called Felindre Ward, and three Older Persons’ Mental Health Admissions Units across the county; Tawe Ward in Ystradgynlais Hospital, Crug Ward in Brecon Hospital and Clywedog Ward in Llandrindod Hospital.
