Abstract: Boredom is a problem in forensic mental health settings, and is believed to increase levels of violence and be detrimental to health and recovery. Eight men in a forensic unit, all with a psychotic disorder, were interviewed regarding their experiences of boredom. A thematic analysis was used to identify emergent themes. These included: Mental health and motivation; Restrictive environment; Responsibilities; and Nothing to do. These findings provide a greater understanding of factors which may contribute to boredom within forensic settings and can guide occupational therapy interventions to address them.
