Our mental health care pathway for women

The women’s mental health pathway specifically meets the needs of women, many of whom have a comorbid diagnosis; providing a safe place for rehabilitation and recovery.

We support recovery from trauma and abuse or domestic violence and help women to maintain their diverse roles as carers, mothers and partners. We recognise the importance of maintaining social networks and looking after physical and reproductive health, especially during pregnancy.

There are three specialist services for personality disorder, mental illness and rehabilitation. There is provision for patients with complex needs (such as comorbid personality disorder and challenging behaviour) and we have a psychiatric intensive care unit for women. The pathway is available across our Birmingham, Essex and Northampton sites.
