Personal Membership

NAPICU is a membership focused, not for profit multi-disciplinary organisation and a registered charity. 

We are committed to our members and to working with our members to develop and promote the speciality of psychiatric intensive care, acute and low secure services.  We are dedicated to improving patient experience and outcome, and to promoting staff support and development.

Our members are mostly located in the United Kingdom and become members when working in specific wards or units, which join our association, or as individual mental health professionals from any discipline.  We also have Ward and individual members from Europe and across the world.

Personal membership of NAPICU comes with some unique benefits you can have your own personal journal and access to utilise the full scope of the secure member’s area of our website at times when you are away from your ward.  The benefits of joining NAPICU are extensive but for the most part, the biggest benefit for personal membership is the access to the most up to date practices and practical guidance and support from professionals who are on the frontline in PICU, Acute and Low secure services.
