‘I’ statements for mental health – News from TLAP
No Assumptions: A narrative for personalised, coordinated care and support in mental health
“Feeling safe, accessing support services without waiting for a medical referral and seeing the same staff members during a crisis”, were just some of the features identified as important to people with mental health needs in a report published by TLAP, National Voices and NHS England.
No Assumptions: A narrative for personalised, coordinated care and support in mental health is intended to support the NHS, council commissioners and service providers wishing to develop mental health support that is both person-centred and integrated.
The narrative which is part of Making it Real, was co-produced with people with experience of mental illness. It sets out a series of “I statements” which describe ‘what good looks like’ whilst also offering innovative practice examples from across the community, hospital wards, primary care, housing and criminal justice settings.
