Booking details:

We will look at the client’s journey through the NHS and sometimes the Independent Sector, from referral to treatment and discharge. Through the use of case studies and small group working we will explore assessment, diagnosis and treatment and identify the similarities and differences between mental health services and psychotherapy in this process as well as comparable skills and understanding of the clients experience and presentation.  

As we look at diagnosis and treatment we will look at the range of factors that can influence a client’s development of mental illness (Mental Health Illness), their experience of their illness and recovery. This will allow us to consider the main classifications of mental illness utilising both the ICD10 and DSM5 classifications We will look at safeguarding, legal and ethical considerations. This will include the Mental Health Act, Mental Capacity Act, Deprivation of Liberty and Community Treatment Orders and consider how these might impact on relationships between staff and clients within mental health services.  

During the course of the 2 days, there will if possible be a talk by a service user about their experience of services and their treatment. We will also try to arrange a talk by a Peer Support Worker, this role is fulfilled by those with lived experience of mental illness who now work within the field to promote the recovery of others through sharing knowledge and experience and reducing the sense of isolation many people feel during the course of their illness.
