SNPG932: Recovery and the lived experience of mental illness – University of Wollongong
Details of Assessment Tasks
Assessment task 1
|Assessment Title||Assignment (Report)|
|The recent review of seclusion, restraint and observation of consumers with a mental illness in NSW Health facilities has provided an important analysis on the use of restrictive practices in these setting (NSW Ministry of Health 2017). The review team identified seven key themes for improvement, including ‘Culture and leadership’. In this theme, they reported:|
The pre-eminence of a custodial and risk-management culture was evident in all aspects of the review. The avoidance of harm through risk management is a community expectation of services. But the pursuit of safety through risk management can often undercut the therapeutic environment. It is a trade-off that many consumers and clinicians find unacceptable, and in many instances is contrary to the principles of recovery (NSW Ministry of Health, 2017, p. 23)
Produce an in-depth written report on the implications this finding has for NSW Health facilities to support personal recovery for consumers and from this, identify recommendations for supporting personal recovery in these settings.
