Philosophy of Care
The clinic’s aim is to provide patient centred care focusing on creating a therapeutic environment where there is trust; respect; dignity; diversity; empathy; compassion; tolerance and safety. .
We aim to be collaborative and focus on shared decision making with our patients which promotes adherence to the four ethical principles:
Better equity of care
Improved attitudes to treatment
Reduction of stigma
Alignment of treatment with the personal values of our patients.
We use the recovery model of care as the corner stone of our approach which focuses on a deeply personal and unique process of enabling each patient who comes into our clinic to work towards living a more satisfying, hopeful and contributing life, even with the limitations caused by their mental disorder.
