We led on a new alliance of specialist providers called RITE ‘Rite to Intervention in Therapeutic Environments’. The aim of RITE is to lobby for the important role that therapeutic environments play in the recovery of severely emotionally troubled children and young people. The RITE mission statement ( see document ) went out to a number of MP’s and the Secretaries of State for Education, Health and Justice, as well as to Dr Eileen Munro.
