Supporting seclusion reduction for Māori

Taiheretia tātou kia puta te hua

There is an unacceptable difference in the number of Māori who are treated with seclusion compared to non-Māori in acute mental health inpatient units in New Zealand.

This report presents findings from a small study completed by Māori Caucus, Te Ao Māramatanga of Māori mental health nurses who have worked in acute mental health inpatient units in New Zealand, with a specific focus on reducing the use of seclusion on Māori.
