Mental health services can manage risk more effectively by involving service users in planning for safety.

Risk, Safety and Recovery argues that risk and safety are rightly major concerns in mental health care but that traditional clinical management methods of assessing risk have stood in the way of helping people to recover their lives. It argues that jointly produced 'safety plans' can be more effective ways of managing risk as well as enabling people to get on with their lives.

Audience: mental health services, practitioners.
