Section G Getting it right


Whether alongside medication or in place of it, it is essential that person-centred, proactive strategies are used to support your relative to live a fulfilling and rewarding life. ‘Getting it right’ means something different for everyone, so you will have to find out how your relative can be best supported in a way that makes the most of their strengths and helps them manage things they find difficult. This section will look at some of the reasons that behaviour described as challenging or mental health needs may develop, proactive support strategies and using plans to maintain positive strategies.
