Focus Group on Restraint in Mental Health

  • Viewpoint 56 Bridge Road East Welwyn Garden City AL7 1JU (map)

Viewpoint is working with the National Service User Network (NSUN) to develop guidance, aimed at improving people’s experience of mental health care and reducing the use of restrictive restraints.


We are looking for people who have a personal experience of restraint or imposed intervention within a mental health setting, to share their experiences and ideas on what else could have worked.
