What is Positive Behaviour Support?


This video by UK Based organisation, Bild, explains Positive Behaviour Support effectively:


“I can finally relax. I’m elderly and living with cancer, I’m not going to live forever. So it’s a huge relief to see my loved one so settled and calm in his new home. I’m delighted with how wonderful the staff are at Open Minds, they have been good to Wayne and I just can’t fault them. Wayne is so much calmer now than he ever was before, so I’m just thrilled. Wayne has come a really long way since Open Minds have been supporting him, and I’m amazed at how much he’s changed for the better.”
