About MPU’s

Medical Psychiatry Units (MPUs) have been established worldwide since the 1980’s. Their aim is to care for patients that are too psychiatrically ill for treatment on traditional medical wards, and too medically ill for treatment on a psychiatric ward. These units are situated in general hospitals and are equipped and staffed to treat the most complex patients with concurrent medical and psychiatric disorders.
