The approach at John Munroe Group and our challenging behaviour services in Staffordshire is to set out a behavioural management plan following a formulation meeting. This meeting is led by a Consultant Psychiatrist and a Consultant Psychologist.
Rehab Approach (measured via the recovery star):
It is well known that boredom can be a trigger self-damaging and aggressive behaviours inpatient with mental health issues. Our mental health hospital in Rudyard, Nr Stoke ensures that all of the inpatients are provided with useful, constructive and supportive activities to aid their rehabilitation. By giving all of our female inpatients’ meaningful tasks and a community to integrate into, we adhere to the underlying principles that the John Munroe Group philosophy of care revolves around.
For our female cohort we offer all female activities and groups so that they can continue to work proactively towards their shared goals in our mental health rehabilitation centre.
We also have sensory equipment such as the Magic Table – the games provide adults, older people and children with a specific care need with activities that are meaningful and above all lots of fun!
At the John Munroe Group we feel it is important that female inpatients are assessed and treated as individuals. An inpatient stay not only provides the crucial opportunity for women to be offered the clinical and therapeutic support that they need, it may also provide a breathing space to allow them to sort out some of the wider problems in their lives (for example, housing and benefit problems).
We offer our female cohort the opportunity to work with female only staff where possible as we know working with female staff can at times be unsettling and distressing.
At the John Munroe Group we are always looking at ways in which we can improve our care and treatments for our patient groups, which is why we always welcome feedback (please click here for more details):
