Alternative Psychiatric Risk Assessment Form / 26 February 2015
Do you need an assessment form to ascertain risk from being in mental heath services? Do the T.I.A.R.A. (The Institution Attendence Risk Assessment)
Are you at risk from neglect from services?
Is there a previous history of neglect and inadequate care from services?
Is there a risk of exploitation? Are they going to gain financially from your vulnerability?
VIOLENCE & AGGRESSION
Is there a history of violence and aggression from staff/system?
Have you been physically restrained? Forcibly medicated? Forcibly ECTed? Has it caused you physical pain? Has it caused you trauma?
Have you previously been sexually assaulted in a psychiatric unit, by either other patients or staff? Did you report it and no action taken?
Have you been forced to take drugs that have known negative health implications, including death?
Does the mental health system have insight into its abusive nature?
Maybe non-compliance is an act of sanity, eh?
