When asking people what they get from attending a mental health day centre, they often talk about the feeling of safety. At a time when all day services are undergoing a process of modernisation, moving away from building-based services that are primarily community based and aimed at social inclusion, it is vital that we retain those elements that offer this feeling of safety. There are many aspects to this sense of safety. This article considers three conflicts that need to be managed in the creation of day services: occupational safety, social safety and therapeutic safety.
