The Hope Model has been developed by KR Health and Social Care, the focus of the model is placed upon the service user’s personal recovery journey, with the emphasis on the pathway, their goals and the future. The model itself incorporates five core domains which form a bespoke pathway chosen by the Service User, the family and the care team and is tailored to individual need. For each domain a toolkit of accessible interventions is available as part of their treatment programme which is determined with the service user based on their individual needs.
Our treatment programme is designed to support patients through their recovery pathway, this will include reducing symptomology, stabilising and supporting patients to utilise effective coping strategies. We will encourage patients to develop their own effective management strategies, structure their days, plan for the future and reintegrate into the community. The treatment plan will be based upon thorough psychological formulation and the HOPE rehabilitation model utililsed to deliver a bespoke treatment plan for individuals delivered by an experienced MDT.
