This guide presents the 10 common core principles to support good mental health and wellbeing in any social care settings. They provide a basis for a general understanding of promoting good mental health and recognising signs of poor mental health among everyone receiving care and support. They aim to build workers’ confidence by identifying good practice underpinned by indicative behaviours. The principles themselves were developed following a literature search and extensive consultation with people who need care and support and their carers. They were also tested with social care employers to ensure they were fit for purpose. The guide includes additional useful resources and further reading. (Edited publisher abstract)
