The Ten Essential Shared Capabilities: a framework for mental health practice

By Alison Brabban, Ian Mcgonagle and Charlie Brooker


The 10 Essential Shared Capabilities (ESC) are a\ud description of the core aspects of practice that\ud support effective implementation and delivery of\ud mental health care. The ESC have been derived\ud directly from work with users, carers and mental\ud health personnel. To support their introduction a\ud learning pack was developed giving examples of the\ud 10 ESC as they relate to current practice.\ud A pilot programme across England was developed\ud to test the acceptability and potential utility of these\ud materials and this paper reports on the evaluation of\ud that pilot programme. Facilitators (n=75) and learners (n=579) were asked to rate each of the seven modules\ud contained in the learning pack. A number of\ud recommendations have been made to improve the materials that are being acted upon
