Chief Psychiatrist’s Sexual Safety Guidelines: Draft for consultation

9 Dec 2019

The Office of the Chief Psychiatrist has been developing guidelines for the sexual safety of consumers of mental health services, and our reference group has produced a draft for wider consultation.

The purpose of the Chief Psychiatrist’s guidelines on the sexual safety of mental health consumers in Western Australia is to provide practical strategies and advice on how mental health services can establish a service culture and environment that actively promotes sexual safety and responds appropriately to incidents that compromise this safety.

In order to ensure that the consultation is as comprehensive as possible we would like to invite you to provide input on the document.
