Abstract

Objective: A commentary on the usefulness of the concepts of organisational culture, organisational climate and justice on the quality and safety of mental health services and how conditions may be improved. 

Conclusions: Organisational culture, organisational climate and justice impact upon the quality and safety of care, as well as well-being of staff, in mental health services. Psychiatrists and trainees, should consider, act and advocate for improved organisational culture, climate and justice. Improvement in these organisational domains can be achieved, through a coordinated framework that acts across all levels of administration, mid-level management and frontline clinical staff.
