- Recommendation ID
- Late access to services and compulsory and intensive treatment:- For people using adult mental health services, what are the personal and demographic factors associated with late access to services and an increased likelihood of compulsory and intensive treatment, and what are the key themes that are associated with poor engagement? This should include an examination of factors that impact on access to services among younger people and older adults.
- Any explanatory notes
- Why this is important:- Qualitative research and experience surveys suggest that service users experience many problems relating to compulsory treatment. However, little is known about the factors associated with accessing services late and the need for compulsory and intensive treatment.
This question should be answered by a case-control study to identify service users from different ethnic groups who use inpatient and intensive treatment services in order to identify the personal and demographic factors associated with late access to services and an increased likelihood of compulsory and intensive treatment. In-depth interviews with service users should be undertaken to identify key themes that are associated with poor engagement.
