JS Care

 

We operate with values based recruitment. We employ people if they have the core conditions/ values of being person centred and we then invest heavily in staff training on Positive Behavioural Support, Autism, Mental Health Awareness, Suicide and Self- Harm, Personality Disorders, Complex Trauma, Self-awareness, Resilience and other Psychologically Informed Approaches (PIE)  We work collaboratively with the CTLD and Psychiatry with the aim of mental health recovery, reduction in behaviour that challenges including self -harm and reducing the amount of psychotropic medication that our service users have been prescribed in the past. We also work with the Intensive Support Team, but in line with our PIE approach, our support workers have been trained to use adapted DBT techniques for people with Learning Disabilities. This makes us less reliant on statutory services for psychological interventions. We also have a life skills coordinator who supports residents with full integration into the community, person centred activity and access to education and employment.
