Mental Health Support

Our Mental Health Support Programmes

The past thirty years have seen massive changes in the way that support is provided for people who live with mental health difficulties. Large, institutional hospitals have mostly closed, and attitudes have changed from one of stigmatisation and segregation, to people being supported to live lives in the community with the tailored support that they need

Mental Health Support covers a huge range of conditions that people may live with. When we add in the fact that every person who lives with a mental health difficulty is an individual who will respond differently to their condition, then there is an obvious need for supporting staff to be professionally knowledgeable and fully person-centred in their approach.

Positive Behaviour Support and Mental Health Difficulties

Acumen Care Education are also a leading, fully-accredited provider of Positive Behaviour Support training.

We fully recognise and endorse the fact that the vast majority of people who live with mental health difficulties never pose a danger to themselves or others. At the same time, it is known that any of us can become challenging when we are fearful, and some forms of mental health difficulty do involve a person being afraid of what is happening, and fearful of others.

If your service needs Positive Behaviour Support training which is specific to people who live with mental health difficulties – including ways of trying to prevent serious episodes of an illness occurring – then we are more than happy to develop a theory and practice PBS course that’s tailored to your requirements
