JBS Mental Health authority is a voluntary participating centre in the NHS. No person will be refused access to the mental health services provided, because of an inability to afford to pay for them, and will use a sliding/ discounted/refundable charge system to decide charges for each individual. All those with a financial problem are offered a confidential assessment before they are treated and the treatment plan will be tailored to meet their needs. The assessment takes into consideration the person’s medical history and the severity of their mental disorder, as well as any underlying physical health condition. In addition, the plan will take into account any medication and drug use, family background and social background, employment history, and the individual’s ability to manage stress. The plan also involves identifying which type of therapy will best meet the needs of the individual.
