Mind mental health practitioners provide practical day-to-day and motivational support to help our clients develop the skills they need to move on, thrive, and improve the quality of their lives.
We know that every person's recovery journey is a very personal one, and needs a flexible, person-centred approach. Mind has developed the My Better Life® model to provide our clients with just that.
My Better Life® is an approach to goal setting and recovery that draws on the tradition of Motivational Interviewing and Implementation Intentions.
My Better Life® provides client choice and control in the recovery process because it is based on conversations between the client and their support worker about the client's views, values and motivation for change across key life areas. It reinforces their intention to achieve change by supporting them to make specific plans to carry out that change.
My Better Life® is built around 12 key life domains that are essential to wellbeing and align with the social model of health. It powerfully articulates the scope for psychosocial interventions.
It was developed through a synthesis of evidence from various sources, including the international research on health, quality of life and wellbeing; deep engagement with Mind clients and their families and carers; our service data; and evaluation studies.
My Better Life® provides a holistic model of mental health and wellbeing support that is tailored to the individual's needs, built on the social model of health and the knowledge base on quality of life and wellbeing, and is measured for its impact on the person's life goals and program objectives.
