Eight participants attended a pilot Group held in Royal Cornhill Hospital over 9 weekly sessions using the Decider Skills. They were asked to complete subjective measures of their mental health before and after the group. The Clinical Outcomes of Routine Evaluation (CORE-10) and Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) were used.
- 87.5% of patients reported reductions in symptoms of Anxiety and Depression on their HADS
- 100% of participants reported feeling that they were more capable of maintaining their mental health independently, using the skills
- 87.5% of patients CORE-10 scores reduced. Some reduced by as much as 66%
"If The Decider Skills were taught to all staff and patients, mental health would improve drastically"
