This list of ‘commandments’ was sent to me by a friend and fellow mental health worker, Margreeth H.
It’s a list of some of the most important principles that good practice is derived from in mental health care.

Peter Hodges, author of 'Hodges' Model' wrote to me some years ago letting me know about this. At that time I was in the middle of a hectic period of training commitments and so I didn't give it the attention it deserved. Today I rectified that.

Check it out.
