Opening doors: A film about seclusion reduction

The film Opening Doors was developed by Awareness: Canterbury Action on Mental Health and Addictions, with support from individuals and organisations including Te Pou.

The film was developed to help people working in the sector understand the impact of seclusion on service users, family and staff.

The training resource was released online in 2012, and free copies have been gifted to DHBs for training.



Te Pou has a wide range of evidence-based resources and tools to help the mental health, addiction and disability workforces.
