This document sets out the ideal configuration for IPUs (inpatient units) for adults, outlining the resources required in terms of buildings, staffing, and training, and suggesting ways of interfacing with community services. It emphasises the importance of the IPU as part of a wider treatment system. An IPU should not be seen as an alternative to community provision, but rather should enhance the delivery of such services by providing targeted work with service users with severe and complex problems.
