About community service hours

The total number of clinical mental health community service hours provided to Victorians. 

About rate of seclusion episodes per 1,000 bed days

A restrictive intervention may only be used after all reasonable and less restrictive options have been tried or considered and have been found to be unsuitable in the circumstances. A restrictive intervention includes seclusion, which means the sole confinement of a person to a room or any other enclosed space from which it is not within the control of the person confined to leave.

Rate of ended seclusion episodes per 1,000 occupied bed days within inpatient units, excluding leave, same day stays and units that do not have a seclusion room.
