Occupation, preferably in gainful employment, that uses and develops the skills and training of the person and satisfies their intellectual capacity
Accommodation, not just shelter but a home providing security in a good environment.
Recognition of the person involves respect for their dignity and their needs including that of interaction with others through integration in our society.Think of the boat as carrying us on its journey across the sea of life and the oar as the essential tool for the trip. Think of the storm as the ‘downs’ of life. If the elements of need that make up the oar are not satisfied, life and even survival is likely to be very difficult indeed for our boat. Applied to people with a mental health disability these basic needs are more acutely relevant to their very survival. Finding some form of Occupation becomes a little easier when we at Hearth and Mind Accommodate them in a home of their own. Recognition, understanding and respect by society in general can also spring from that.
