Example text

In a sense, both PSI and recovery ideas share the ethos and the necessity of ‘partnership/collaborative working’. The emphasis stressed within this book, on integrating both psychosocial and pharmacological interventions, and working with (as opposed to against, or at best in spite of ) users, carers, and the wider community, means that PSI-plus-medication tends to be more holistic and person-centred. It is also an approach where a more developed partnership ethos is used, where clinical staff work alongside users and their carers.

Mental Health Promotion and a Recovery Approach Stigma reduction is seen as central to the NSF (Department of Health 999), especially in relation to Standard One, which addresses mental health promotion, stating that the NSF aims: ‘to ensure health and social services promote mental health and reduce the discrimination and social exclusion associated with mental health problems’ (p. 4). The MHPIG (Department of Health 200) further reinforced the importance of mental health promotion. A number of benefits of doing this are identified in the MHPIG which envisages that a more health-promoting approach would: 4 Psychosocial Developments • improve physical health and well-being • prevent or reduce the occurrence of some mental health problems, notably behavioural disorders, depression and anxiety and substance misuse • assist recovery from mental health problems • improve mental health services and the quality of life for people experiencing mental health problems • strengthen the capacity of communities to support social inclusion, tolerance and participation and reduce vulnerability to socio-economic stresses • increase the ‘mental health literacy’ of individuals, organisations and communities and • improve health at work, increasing productivity and reducing sickness absence.

Research shows that progress in the first few years following a first episode of psychosis is highly significant in determining the course of mental disorder (Birchwood 2000; Petersen et al. 2005), yet there are often long delays in people receiving treatment (Birchwood, Jackson and Todd 998). ‘Late intervention’ can lead to young people presenting to services in crisis, having experienced several missed opportunities for detection and treatment. Individuals are then often hospitalised under the Mental Health Act (MHA) 983 (Department of Health 983) into stressful environments that can generate post-traumatic stress disorder in addition to the psychosis and an unwillingness to keep in contact with services after discharge from hospital (World Health Organisation 2004).
