Individuals from London and the south of England with an actual or suspected diagnosis of severe personality disorder, with very serious offences and assessed as high/very high risk of harm to others. Most referrals come from MSUs or from A or B Category prisons. Although the individual does not need to consent to the referral, a complete lack of motivation to engage in therapy may make the referral impractical.


240 high secure hospital places for the assessment, treatment and care of men with mental illness and personality disorders who represent a high degree of risk to themselves or to others. Treatment includes a combination of medication and psychological therapies. Average stay is 5-6 years, though many people have shorter stays.
