Roadmap to Seclusion and Restraint Free Mental Health Services – In 2003, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) set forth a bold vision to reduce and ultimately eliminate the use of seclusion and restraint in behavioral healthcare settings. SAMHSA has established seclusion and restraint as a priority area and has developed a National Action Plan to reach our vision of seclusion and restraint free mental health services. Roadmap to Seclusion and Restraint Free Mental Health Services represents a key component of this National Action Plan. It will increase the knowledge and skills of mental health service direct care staff, administrators, and consumers on alternatives to the use of seclusion and restraint. We also see this training as a tool to assist you with mental health system transformation—creating mental health services and supports that facilitate recovery and promote resiliency.
