Care Programme Approach

The Care Programme Approach (CPA) helps us co-ordinate your care needs. These include the individual, social, cultural, language and gender needs arising from your mental health problems.

Who is it for?

The CPA is for everyone who is accepted into Specialist Mental Health Services.

How does it work?

  • When you first come into contact with mental health services you will be assessed to find out about your health and social care needs.
  • A named person (a care co-ordinator) will be there to support you and be your main point of contact. An interpreter can made available if required.
  • A written plan for your care will be drawn up with you.
  • There will be regular reviews of your care.
