Conference on Mechanical restraints in the Psychiatric Field

We attended the conference organized by the ‘Taula de Salut Mental de Granollers i comarca’ composed of 26 organizations among service providers, social agents and institutions of the health region of Vallès Oriental Central and Baix Montseny.

We listened to the first-person testimonies of those who have suffered mechanical restraints during hospitalisation. Also the main service providers in the area presented the results of their actions aimed to the Mechanical restraints O goal.

There was an opportunity to explore alternatives to forced hospitalisation, such as the Open Dialog.

Finally, we were involved in the working groups for joint reflection, among professionals, relatives and people with their own experience, on the possible alternatives for dealing with the complexities present in critical situations.
