Type: Written activity using a templated Mental Health Assessment framework and Care plan
Written activity using a templated Mental Health Assessment framework and Recovery/Care plan – based on video and electronic materials (Case study – Lisa - available under Assessment Information in Modules). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83i2MWMqph8
This will assist in developing an understanding of how assessment is completed in the clinical setting, and support the understanding and application of recovery/care planning in practice.
Students are required to prepare a written mental health assessment (using the template provided - available under Assessment Information in Modules) that addresses the holistic care and recovery needs of the consumer identified in the provided video and electronic materials for the Case study (Lisa). This must include ethical and legislative considerations related to mental health care and it needs to be evidence-based considering the specifics of the Case study.
The recovery/care plan will reflect and align with the findings of the completed mental health assessment. The care plan should identify priorities/issues that ensure safety, provision of trauma-informed care, and facilitate recovery planning for the consumer of the Case study. The care plan should also identify psychosocial interventions which could be implemented to address and support each of the priorities identified. These strategies and interventions should be person-centered and trauma-focused, reflecting legal and ethical considerations for mental health care. It is important to identify how the efficacy of these interventions ('how you would know they have worked') is evaluated. Interventions identified should be supported via reference to peer-reviewed academic literature, published within the last five (5) years. Use of the APA 7th Edition for both the style guide (this gives guidance on writing/formatting etc.) and referencing.
The total word limit for the assignment is not to exceed 3000 words (this does not include referencing or the templated materials).
