Section 82(1) of the Mental Health Act defines seclusion as ‘the sole confinement of a person at any hour of the day or night in a room of which the doors and windows are locked from the outside. This includes the confinement of a person alone in any room or space within a building, the exit of which cannot be opened by the person from the inside’.

Conduct research to clarify statutory requirements and duty of care responsibilities applying to the seclusion of clients with mental health issues.
