One page profiles in mental health

A recent conversation with Stuart Lane about personal health budgets got me to thinking about one page profiles and how they might support creative working in teams and in collaborative working with people accessing services. We had a discussion about what it might be like if staff had a one page profile that was available to service users; would this be a good thing? Would it enhance engagement? Would it encourage more critical thinking about choice of worker? Would it be ‘too much information’? Would it make any difference to how staff relate to each other? Lots of questions to ponder over. My instincts are that it would be a good thing but thats only my view……….

Helen Sanderson Associates do a lot of work on one page profiles and are currently offering a free webinar, click here for info on how to book on: Person Centred Practices in Mental Health, 29th January 2 -3pm

Main topics are:-

1. Using One Page Profiles, both with people with Mental Health needs and in the teams supporting them working in Clinical settings and in the Community.

2. How Person Centred Thinking Tools can be used to analyse and solve common problems in Mental Health services.

3. An introduction to improving reviews and CPA through Person Centred Practice.

So what do personal health budgets and one page profiles have to do with each other? Well, they both require some creative thinking; some letting go of existing ways of viewing and doing things; and both could contribute to a person’s wellbeing and recovery.

Already looking forward to seeing how personal health budgets in Mental Health will work…………….
