One-in-four adults and one-in-ten children experience mental illness during their lifetime, and many more of us know and care for people who do.
Improved mental health and wellbeing is associated with a range of better outcomes for people of all ages and backgrounds.
The adult safeguarding duties under the Care Act 2014 applies, amongst others to adults who have a disability or long-term illness, including people with mental health problems.
It is a priority for the SAB to ensure that adults at risk of abuse and neglect are protected, and that practitioners are skilled and trained appropriately to recognise changes in symptoms and behaviours that may indicate a deterioration in their mental health and that a change in care management/planning is required; and are safeguarded in line with the principles of Making Safeguarding Personal.
