Prior to arriving at The Cottage, C had a number of placement breakdowns, eventually resulting in a period of time in a hospital setting to support her needs. C arrived at The Cottage from a hospital setting to ensure she could receive the high level of support in order for her to continue making positive steps forward.
C continued to display behaviours that would place her at risk like attempts to go missing, self-harming attempts, no engagement with professionals and physical assaults on staff members.
Staff continued to provide a resilient and consistent approach to the care delivery for C. This began to show signs of promise, with C engaging with CAMHS and working with the structure rules and behaviour pattern that was implemented for her to follow.
We began to reduce the intense level of observations for C which encouraged the reduction of self harm attempts even more.
C began to engage in education again which was a fantastic achievement, initially it began on a part time basis and now this is a full time commitment for her.
C is establishing positive friendship groups and is able to show respect to her peers and receive this as well, which is fantastic.
The manager made a connection with the voices and personalities worker at CAMHS who began to work closely with C in order to help get control her disassociation and personalities.
The progress that C has made during her time at The Cottage s fantastic and we are so proud of her. C is now in consideration for group living and we plan to enable this within the company.
A massive well done C.
