Abstract

Medium secure forensic psychiatric units are unique environments within the broader “post asylum” landscape of mental health services. Length of stay is much greater and restrictions on behavior, including sexual behavior, are legally and institutionally legitimated, due to concerns regarding risk. As a result, sexuality is rarely explored with service users and no official policies on sexual conduct and sexual safety have yet been developed, despite sexuality being linked to positive recovery outcomes.
