you at Waypoint. This includes: a bed; meals and snacks; showers or baths and access to outdoor space. We try to make the space as private as possible however it is communal living.

b) Care teams at Waypoint will include several professionals working together with you to support your recovery. The team will communicate as much as possible so you won’t need to share your story, your questions or your worries repeatedly.

c) That we will listen to you. We will ask questions that help us to understand you and what your hopes are for recovery.

e) That we will encourage, and support you as you work hard in achieving your recovery goals.

f) That we will keep a clinical record that describes our assessment as well as the care we provide.
This record contains facts and avoids unfounded conclusions, prejudice, or value judgments.

 

g) That you can view your clinical record if you wish. A clinician can be with you when you view it so you can have questions answered. If you disagree with the information on the clinical record, it may be corrected or you may be able to add a note saying you disagree.

i) That if you want a second opinion from another psychiatrist, we will help you to get one.
