Mental Health

Care and compassion in mental health

Mental health practitioners work with individuals of all ages, families and communities throughout the entire life span. The focus of mental health care is a person-centered approach  rather than a particular aspect of the individual or a particular pathological condition.

Interventions are concerned with empowering people and helping them achieve, maintain and or recover independence in order to maximise their life potential Mental health practitioners work with individuals of all ages, families and communities throughout the entire life span.

Care and support is based on values which respect the dignity, autonomy and uniqueness of human beings and so mental practitioners need to care about the people they are dealing with and demonstrate warmth, empathy and compassion.

The main tools of the practitioners are the strength of their own personality and effective communication skills, building relationships with individuals to encourage trust, while listening to and interpreting needs and concerns.
