Personalisation and mental health
he video, produced by the Social Care Institute for Excellence's own TV channel, Social Care TV, is introduced by Tracy Simpson of Develop partner Community Options.
Tracy gives a practitioner perspective on personalisation, emphasising that service user and carer participation, co-production and empowerment are vital. The video introduces the work of support, time and recovery (STR) workers and shows how by giving support and time to service users they can promote recovery.
Personalisation has implications for practitioners; instead of 'treating' people, they will need to focus on enabling and supporting the individual. The video also looks at personal budgets for people with mental health problems.
