A traditional psych ward is a ward within a hospital that houses psychiatric patients. Traditionally patients on a psych ward will be housed in a large room with multiple beds allowing for minimal privacy.

In the US and many other developed countries places referred to as psych wards are actually psychiatric units, psychiatric departments, or psychiatric hospitals. Patients in these places are typically housed in individual rooms or with 1-3 roommates, rather than on a traditional ward.
