Learning Disabilities & Mental Health needs

25 May 2016

Care Management Group (CMG) has over 14 years experience of supporting people with multiple diagnoses of learning disabilities and mental health needs, including support for people with a forensic history or risk.

Our dedicated Clinical Support Team, including our Mental Health Nurse Specialist and Clinical Director (PG Dip Mental Health in Learning Disabilities) liaise with local healthcare professionals to ensure that consistent and appropriate input is available. We have excellent working relationships with community mental health and learning disability teams.

CMG ensure that the support we provide is flexible, based on individual need and in line with the Care Programme Approach (CPA). Person centred planning enables us to undertake detailed care and relapse prevention planning whilst measuring progress by working towards a set of realistic outcomes. These outcomes are identified for everyone we support, which is a fundamental part of gaining greater independence.

We appropriately safeguard people with complex multiple diagnoses whilst supporting them to exercise full choice and control using pro-active and positive means of managing risk including pro-active risk management. We use clear, multi-agency risk assessments and strategies and high levels of supervision, where required, to facilitate inclusion.

A range of tools are used to support in identifying potential mental health issues e.g. Mini PAS-ADD. Additional risk assessment and management tools are utilized depending on the circumstances including RM2000, HCR-20, ARMIDILO-S, suicide risk assessments, fire-setting risk management plans.
