This report from the Mental Health Commission shows that there was a 4% increase in physical restraint and seclusion practices from 2015 to 2016 up from 75% to 79%.

It also revealed that more men then women were physically restrained, and 90% of all episodes are said to have lasted less than 15 minutes.
