The Vision
• By 2017, mental health service provision in
the UK will be better for the active role and
inspirational leadership provided by the
cultural heritage and identity of occupational
therapy, which at its core is social in nature
and belief. It will therefore deliver the kind of
care that service users want, need and
deserve.
College of Occupational Therapists 2007
Ten Guiding Principles
• Interventions move the client in the direction of fuller
participation in society through the performance of
occupations that are appropriate to her of his age,
social and cultural background, interests and
aspirations.
• People who use occupational therapy services play a
part in developing, monitoring and evaluating those
services.

of Occupational therapy

your mind into recovery and occupation.” (Service user)
• Occupational therapists are experts in doing, helping people to
develop skills and overcome barriers. Timely interventions can
prevent hospital admission, facilitate early discharge, reduce
incidents on wards. We need to evidence for commissioners our
successes in recovery.

committees and other groups that develop or influence policy in
the field of mental health.

users employed as visiting lecturers.” (Service user)
• Pre-registration education for occupational therapists must
continue to strive to meet the needs of service users in modern
mental health services.

curriculum so that mental health education is grounded in
current best practice

therapy Workforce Development

“It was not relevant to me, baking fairy cakes and cooking English
meals.” (Service user) “Usually a young, white, middle class girl”
(Service user)
•
The workforce needs to be diverse to reflect the population we serve.
We need more men and staff from BME and culturally diverse
populations. (Taylor 2007 Casson Memorial Lecture)

other meaningful activity)and health promotion
• Commissioning for occupational therapy within a
broad range of services

To Make This Happen!
• We need to re-assert and believe in the right
of people to have their occupational needs
met

leadership skills willing to make it happen

we should be doing
