Summary

This report, commissioned by the Chief Mental health Nurse and published in 2015, reviewed the literature on the practices of physical restraint, mechanical restraint and seclusion in mental health services, building on literature reviews previously commissioned by the Department of Health and Human Services. It also reviewed policies, procedures and guidelines in Victorian mental health services to identify the extent to which physical restraint was being addressed in documentation prior to the implementation of the Mental Health Act 2014.
