It’s been reported that up to 95 percent of nurses say they have experienced verbal and/or physical aggression from patients. A 2007 study by the Victorian Department of Human Services for that Mental Health and Emergency Departments were particularly high risk areas of aggression and violence in the workplace for health workers.

There is no doubt that the care of patients with mental health issues can be very challenging and raises specific issues in relation to occupational violence, adopting the principles and philosophy of a non-violent culture can substantially reduce the incidence of aggression.
