Data and the Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Act

In this blog Debbie Ivanova, Director for people with a learning disability and autistic people, and Jemima Burnage, Interim Director of Mental Health, discuss the Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Act and how vital it is to the rest of the act’s provisions.

  • reduce the use of force, including restraint (force used to prevent or make someone do something) and enforced isolation (seclusion and segregation)
  • ensure accountability and transparency about the use of force in our mental health units.
