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.
John Munroe Group Rehabilitation Approach (measured via the Recovery Star):
Capturing Evidence of Rehabilitation:
As twenty-first century service providers, we must have the means to ensure our support is effective and to capture the evidence that it is effective. And we must reflect on our effectiveness and learn from it.
Evidence helps us become better at what we do, helps service users become optimistic about what they can achieve, motivates staff and provides proof that our services work for commissioners and care coordinators as well as the patient and their relatives.
The Mental Health Recovery Star makes it possible to capture this evidence while enabling users and workers to discuss the important issues and to assess where they are now and where they are going. This exciting development exemplifies our values as we work for a society in which all people with mental health concerns have the right to get the support they need from a wide diversity of providers.
The Recovery Star:
The Mental Health Providers Forum (MHPF) brings together the leading voluntary sector providers who are focused on promoting recovery and working collaboratively to improve the lives of people with mental health problems.
Working together, MHPF members can demonstrate their commitment to:
This underpins the values of the MHPF. By working together to develop, implement and promote widespread use of the Mental Health Recovery Star,
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 male inpatients are assessed and treated as individuals. An inpatient stay not only provides the crucial opportunity for men 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 male cohort the opportunity to work with male only staff where possible as we know working with female staff can at times be unsettling and distressing at times.
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):
