Abstract

Introduction: Consumers longitudinally have reported a lack of leisure activity offered in mental health inpatient units and are often found bored which can lead to aggression.

Objectives: This study aimed to explore the barriers to engagement in activity and consumer satisfaction in inpatient settings. Furthermore, the study aimed to understand the facilitators to engagement and identify the leisure interests of consumers in these settings.

Method: Participants who were admitted to mental health inpatient units in Brisbane, Queensland, were asked to complete online anonymous surveys to provide feedback on the activities offered. The survey included standardised tools such as the Mental Health Satisfaction Improvement Program (MHSIP), Leisure Boredom Scale (LBS) and the Checklist of Leisure Interests and Participation (CLIP).

Results: A total of 41 participants completed an online survey. The MHSIP achieved high internal consistency (mean = 53.5, SD = 12.52, Cronbach's Alpha = 0.805). The LBS internal consistency was considered moderate (mean = 51.43, SD = 6.447, Cronbach's Alpha = 0.574). Participants reported several barriers to engagement including lack of staff, limited social engagement, limited range of activity and a lack of resources. The CLIP also achieved high internal consistency (mean = 184.59, SD = 52.419, Cronbach's Alpha = 0.96).

Conclusion: Participants reported being bored with limited occupational range offered in the mental health inpatient unit. Consumers can adequately identify leisure interests that are meaningful to them. Participants identified the need for assistance in the facilitation of leisure activity and were more likely to participate with assistance from staff.
