Health and social care workers are responsible for providing health or social care. This includes GPs, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, health care assistants, counsellors, therapists, and occupational therapists.

All health and social care workers must follow certain standards of care, including keeping professional boundaries and treating people with dignity and respect.

But we know that sometimes this doesn't happen and people receive poor quality mental health care. In some cases, it might be abuse.

Abuse by a health or social care worker could mean:

  • psychological abuse ­

  • emotional abuse

  • verbal abuse

  • sexual abuse

  • discriminatory abuse

  • physical abuse

  • financial or material abuse

  • neglect.
