St Andrew's wins five RAID awards

St Andrew's has achieved more awards success this week, this time in the RAID awards, for excellence in working with challenging behaviour.

These annual, national awards celebrate people that work with challenging behaviour each day, and help enable those who exhibit such behaviour to lead rewarding lives. They are run by the Association for Psychological Therapies, known for its RAID training programme.

St Andrew's dominated the list, taking five out of the twelve awards. The following projects and services were selected as winners:

1. Goal setting - to support patients with acquired brain injury
2. Rose Ward - providing feedback to patients with brain injury to help them manage their behaviour
3. Spencer South - supporting female patients with Borderline Personality Disorder to understand their behaviour
4. The MAK cafe, Neuropsychiatry - developing patients' vocational and social skills via a pop-up cafe.
5. Neuropsychiatry pathway - a project to examine whether RAID reminder sessions help staff record more behavioural improvements
