Without the Triangle of Care (TOC), the communication system is one that can very often exclude the carer – the very person who knows the service user best and therefore can best inform the professionals about their needs, their likes and dislikes etc.
The Guessing Game highlights the impact of the TOC when it’s not in place and what can happen when it is. We’re delighted to be delivering this event this week (Mental Health Awareness Week) in East Renfrewshire. The event is funded by the Greater Glasgow & Clyde NHS Appeals Society . The Guessing Game is a piece of theatre which stops and starts allowing for audience discussion and interaction.
