The reduction or elimination of seclusion and restraint is a national priority. The ACMHN have therefore commissioned academics from the University of Technology Sydney to produce an Australian version of the Te Pou adaptation of the 6 Core Strategies ©.

This work is now in draft form, and ready for feedback from the broader mental health community in Australia (see below links to download the PDF document). Please access and read the document (there is an abbreviated and full draft available) then click here to complete an anonymous online survey that takes approximately 10 minutes.

The more feedback we have on this draft, the more useful this document will eventually be for frontline clinicians, so please share the survey widely amongst your networks.

We thank you in advance for your time and feedback.
