The British Psychological Society pledge to the Equally Well Charter:
Psychological assessment and formulation uniquely uses a biopsychosocial approach to consider the whole person including both physical and mental health. The British Psychological Society advocates that all health and social care practitioners practise individualised care and consider a person holistically as so often physical and mental health are intrinsically linked. For example, the Society has produced a position paper on dementia and is working on a paper regarding autism. These advocate that people with dementia and people with autism receive equal treatment of co-occurring conditions. These messages have been and will continue to be shared with MPs commissioners and wider stakeholders.
