Summary

Leave for admitted mental health inpatients is encouraged to support person-centred recovery, sustain community-based living and ensure that treatment is provided in the least restrictive manner possible. Decisions to support or refuse leave requests are based on assessment and management of clinical risk and should be made through active collaboration with the treating team, the patient, carers and families. Decisions regarding a patient's leave and the rationale for leave are to be documented in the patient's medical record.
