Our Person-Centred, Multi-Professional Approach
We follow a person-centred, multi-professional approach for all referrals into our services. First carrying out robust nursing and medical assessments of their mental health. This includes the risks, a functional assessment by an OT, and case formulation by a psychologist. This enables the MDT to co-produce care plans with service users that are designed to achieve their individual recovery goals. Progress towards achievement will be monitored under this contract using the Recovery Star.
Our large multi-disciplinary teams provides specialist and compassionate care to patients including primary care services as needed supporting and respecting an individual’s spiritual and cultural needs.

Recovery Pathway for Service Users
The effective recovery pathway for service users includes a period of risk assessment and formulating management plans. This involves regular Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) reviews led by consultant psychiatrists, case formulation, nursing and medical support and working collaboratively with the service users. Physical health is monitored by the in-house GP and supported by the physical healthcare lead nurse.
Our occupational therapist and MDT help service users develop required living skills, vocational rehabilitation, and interpersonal and social skill needed for a safe transition into the community.
We also offer our service users a customised Psychology Care Plan, tailored to help manage emotional difficulties including those related to emotionally unstable personality disorder where it presents as an additional diagnosis.
Individual Supportive Sessions:
Our psychology model includes regular individual sessions, currently provided by an Assistant Psychologist, and supervised by a Consultant Psychologist. The sessions are based on a mindfulness-based CBT approach. They help regulate service users’ emotions, psychoeducation, crisis planning, goal setting, and distress tolerance skills. This helps them develop healthy coping skills needed to consolidate recovery in other domains of their rehabilitation journey.
The psychology team also offers group sessions based on mindfulness-based cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and emotional regulation in collaboration with the nursing team.
