A qualitative exploration of mental health service user and carer perspectives on safety issues in UK mental health services.

Berzins K, Baker J, Louch G, et al. Health Expect. 2020;23(3):549-561.

This qualitative study interviewed patients and caregivers about their experiences and perceptions of safety within mental health services. These interviews identified a broad range of safety issues; the authors suggest that patient safety in mental health services could be expanded to include harm caused trying to access services and self-harm provoked by contact with, or rejection from, services.
