MyRAP - Groups in Lanarkshire

Wednesday, April 15, 2015 By: Gerald | Tagged: , |

MyRAP is now being used with small groups of people which encourages natural peer support. Each MyRAP group is facilitated by two Peer Support Workers who use their own lived experience in a therapeutic way to guide and support the group.

Groups are interactive, fun and creative and provide people with various methods to share learning and experiences in a comfortable environment.

MyRAP groups run in each area for a period of six weeks and each session lasts no longer than one and a half hours.

Review of Old Age Psychiatry Services Stakeholder Update March 2015

Wednesday, March 04, 2015 By: Fiona | Not tagged |

NHS Lanarkshire has been carrying out a review of acute assessment beds for older people with mental health issues in response to the changing needs and profile of older people who access NHS Lanarkshire's Old Age Psychiatry Services.

The review is aimed at providing the best possible care for patients requiring an Old Age Psychiatry acute admission bed. A stakeholder event in 2013 as part of the review identified providing the service on acute hospital sites was the best option to ensure better access to specialist care, quicker assessment and better outcomes for patients.

Such service changes are also supported by continued investment in locally based community mental health teams, ensuring that we can provide better care for people in their own homes.

Work is continuing as part of the review to identify suitable accommodation for Lanarkshire's Old Age Psychiatry beds. We hope to have a decision on this in March 2015. We will ensure patients, relatives, staff and other stakeholders are kept fully informed before any changes take place.

More information about the review can be found at: .
