Seclusion and Restraint Project Online Survey Closing

Seclusion and Restraint Project Online Survey Closing

The Seclusion and Restraint project online survey will be closing this Friday the 16th of May at 5pm.

If you have not yet filled out the survey and wish to, you can do so by following the link to the survey.

To date more than 1000 people have completed the survey.

The Seclusion and Restraint Project is a result of this issue being consistently raised by people with lived experience of mental health issues and their families, service providers and policy makers, wanting action to be taken.

The Commission has engaged a multi-disciplinary team at the University of Melbourne, looking at best practice in reducing and eliminating the seclusion and restraint of people with mental health issues.

We pay our respects to their clans, and to the elders, past present and emerging, and acknowledge their continuing connection to land, sea and community.


The Commission is committed to embracing diversity and eliminating all forms of discrimination in the provision of health services. The Commission welcomes all people irrespective of ethnicity, lifestyle choice, faith, sexual orientation and gender identity.

Lived Experience

We acknowledge the individual and collective contributions of those with a lived and living experience of mental ill-health and suicide, and those who love, have loved and care for them. Each person’s journey is unique and a valued contribution to Australia’s commitment to mental health suicide prevention systems reform.
