Providing a safe environment for all: Framework for reducing restrictive interventions

This framework, Providing a safe environment for all, is central to the government's commitment to reduce restriction and provide mental health services that are safe places for all people accessing treatment and care, their support people and those who work with them. The framework has been developed as part of the Reducing Restrictive Interventions project. It will assist health services to comply with mental health reform objectives and the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006 by providing guidance in developing a local response to reduce the use of restrictive interventions through a culture of safety and recovery.
