Care in Mind has recently taken the pledge, with the Restraint Reduction Network, to work towards creating restraint-free environments for young people in our care.

What is it that the Restraint Reduction Network do?

Their mission is to be clear and transparent when it comes to their commitment to all the people that use, work and are involved in their services. They want all their staff to work together effectively to make sure that the use of coercive and restricted practice is minimised, and the misuse and abuse of restraint is prevented altogether.

They will work together with all those who have taken to pledge to build restraint free services that are built on continuous improvement and learning.

Why have Care in Mind taken the pledge?

“Care in Mind have always been passionate about creating services for young people with complex mental health conditions, free from restraint, we are very committed to provide a restraint free service, promoting inclusion and recovery”. Sharron Amri, Managing Director.
