Mental Health Debate: The practice of seclusion in New Zealand hospitals

The debate – the practice of seclusion. Hosted by End Seclusion Now, a campaign group working to bring about a prompt and decisive end to the practice of seclusion. Seclusion (solitary confinement) continues to be used in New Zealand hospitals. This is despite recommendations by the United Nations for immediate legislation for the elimination of seclusion, as well as an expectation of elimination that is called for in key polices set by the Ministry of Health for each of the 21 District Health Boards.
