20 Commandments 1: Introduction
Posted on 6:51am Monday 23rd Apr 2012
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. I was struck by both the lists simplicity (always a bonus when attempting to influence practice) and also its focus which gets to the heart not only of ‘task-based’ responsibility but also the equally important ‘relationship’ aspects of mental health care.
It’s not an exhaustive list – let’s face it a meaningful set of 20 principles can never cover everything. To try to do that would mean making the individual commandments so general that they would become vague and almost meaningless. Instead this list represents some of the more important ‘core’ aspects of good quality mental health care.
I’m grateful to Margreeth H. for allowing me to publish these commandments here.
You can find Margreeth H. on Twitter by following @mrgr8 – it will be worth it if you do.
