Care planning (mental health)

The Care programme approach (CPA) is the framework we use to deliver care to individuals who use Oxleas mental health services. When you are referred to Oxleas, we will make an assessment of your mental health needs. This allows us to think through how best we can help you or if your needs would be better managed by other services.

A professional will be allocated to work with you to develop a plan of care that outlines how you can work together to build on your strengths and address the difficulties that you have been experiencing.

To be sure that we are delivering the best care to meet your needs, at regular intervals we will review your care with you and any other professionals who may also be involved. Our video takes you through what happens at a review.

Our leaflet called “Assessment and Care Planning” (available below) also outlines the care programme approach in more detail.
