New guidance for mental health professionals has been published following a major new study into "routine enquiry" in mental health settings. The study revealed that, even though routine enquiry has been Department of Health policy since 2003, it is inconsistently applied.
The four briefings published November 2015 provide guidance for mental health commissioners, trust managers, service providers and front-line professionals on how services can be improved, based on survivors' experiences. A further briefing demonstrates the links between experience of violence and abuse and mental health problems.
