Danshell Learning Disability and Autism Services 

Danshell supports and cares for adults living with a learning disability, who may also have a diagnosis of autism, in specialist supported living, residential services and hospitals. Our aim is to deliver effective and outcome based services within person centred, professional care environments, supporting people to have the most choice and independence possible. We set high standards for ourselves in the delivery of care, and most importantly, we put the people we support at the heart of everything we do.

Personality disorder is a condition that disrupts all of the relationships in the person's life across work, home and leisure situations. People with personality disorders experience high levels of anxiety, depression and interpersonal sensitivity. The condition is often associated with underlying mental illness, such as bipolar disorder.

How we support people with this diagnosis:

Our clinical and nursing staff have been trained to a high standard in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of people with learning disabilities and personality disorder. We use the most up-to-date methods of assessment and treatment, which have been recently been adjusted to accommodate changes in diagnosis and the legal framework. Assessment is likely to include not only categorisation of the personality disorder, but also an assessment of the underlying personality traits that may cause the personal and interpersonal conflict. Our management of service users with personality disorder and learning disabilities has been successful, often outstandingly so, with several individuals moving on to more independent living with support from local services.
