Abstract

Since 2003 it has been Department of Health policy that all adult service users should be asked about experiences of violence and abuse in mental health assessments. However, by 2006 it was apparent that mental health provider trusts were not generally implementing the policy and a two-year initiative was launched to pilot an approach to introducing routine enquiry and embedding it in clinical practice. The pilot involved a total of 15 trusts and its evaluation identified key lessons for effective implementation of routine enquiry in all trusts. In 2012 the Department of Health funded follow-up research on responding effectively to the needs of survivors of violence and abuse to include case-studies of four of the original pilot trusts to implement routine enquiry (the REVA study). This guidance is based on findings from this study.
