This research study investigates Service User and practitioner experiences of community treatment orders (CTOs) within a climate of personalisation of services that aims to provide Service Users with increased autonomy and choice over their care. The 2007 amendment to the Mental Health Act 1983 stands at odds with this general thrust in policy-making towards personalisation in providing for a number of key changes for the use of compulsion within mental health services. This study explores experiences and uses of CTOs within the tension between autonomy and choice on one hand, and compulsion and control on the other.
