The MHCC‘s report The right to be safe: ensuring sexual safety in acute mental health inpatient units was released in March 2018. This report examined people’s experiences of not being or feeling sexually safe in acute inpatient mental health services.

The summary of responses to it from Victorian mental health services is now available here: The right to be safe sexual safety report - summary of service responses. The responses from services show that some services have made meaningful and significant changes to their processes and culture, particularly after a serious sexual safety breach has occurred. However, these changes have not been achieved by all services and there are further actions many could take in terms of prevention and targeted intervention.
