All referrals to Ward 9B must come via the Southern DHB Emergency Psychiatric Service/Psychiatric Consultation Liaison Service, Southern DHB Adult Community Mental Health Services, or another Mental Health Unit.
Ward 9B is a locked unit providing a safe therapeutic environment for clients in an acute phase of a mental health disorder who are unable to be managed in a less restricted area, i.e. open ward. Through individual assessment, treatment, and stabilisation the client is able to be transitioned back to the community either directly or via the rehabilitation unit.
