Secondary care to primary care transition

Post by mayakuhl » Fri Feb 16, 2018 5:35 pm

Hi there, I'm an AP working with non-psychosis adult groups. Myself and some colleagues are looking at piloting a group that helps clients better manage the transition from secondary mental health care to primary mental health care. Does anyone know of any existing group work on this difficult transition for clients? Do Mind or ReThink or any NHS trusts have anything in place?

On a related note, any research on why the transition might be difficult (I'm thinking attachment), or the need to enable as smooth a transition as possible would be greatly welcome.

Many thanks

This was posted in the wrong section. I don't know if the OP still wants some help, but I've moved it and thought I'd bump it in case anyone had advice to offer.

I don't know of any NHS trusts or charitable services that have this in place.

I have been on the development team of something similar in transition but within long term condition/physical health teams. So I might be of some help?

Is it worth maybe speaking to other psychologists/researchers/counsellors/consultants/nurses or other health care professional in different teams to help?

It sounds really interesting and would be keen to know how you get on!
