National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. [NICE] (2017) Violent and aggressive behaviours in people with mental health problems. London: NICE. Quality standard QS154

URL: https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/qs154


This quality standard covers short-term prevention and management of violent and physically threatening behaviour among adults, children and young people with a mental health problem. It applies to settings where mental health, health and social care services are provided. This includes community settings and care received at home. It describes high-quality care in priority areas for improvement.

 

It does not specifically cover violence and aggression among people with a primary diagnosis of learning disability because this group has been covered in the quality standard on learning disabilities: challenging behaviour
