The second edition of this acclaimed book offers a critical analysis of the transition from institutional to community care for people with mental health problems. Despite the almost complete abandonment of the old Victorian asylum system, the powerful cultural legacy of segregation remains potent in modern thought Rogers and Pilgrim analyse the impact of new policies introduced by the Labour government since it came to power in 1997, identifying both the processes and causes of policy change and assessing its value in the context of longer term debates about madness and distress.

The 1950s and 1960s were revolutionary, heralding the emergence of a modern mental health care system, under the direction of the newly-created Northern Ireland Hospitals Authority.

Addressing the dramatic changes in healthcare systems since the early 1990s, this work questions whether these major "reforms" are driven by the health needs of the wider population or, in fact, by non-health considerations such as financial and political concerns of governments and global institutions. This major new study presents the key issues facing health professionals today and is aimed at medics and administrators alike. The book's use of a common analytical framework produces a consistent critical analysis of different situations in various countries, making its approach wholly unlike previous studies of the topic of modern healthcare.

This critical interdisciplinary study charts the modern history of mental health services, reflects upon the evolution of care in communities and considers the most effective policies and practices for the future. Starting with the development of community care in the 1960s, Cummins explores the political, economic and bureaucratic factors behind the changes and crises in mental health social care since, returning to those roots to identify progressive principles that can pave a sustainable pathway forward. This is a ground-breaking contribution to debates about the role, values and future of community care and is vital reading for students, teachers and researchers in the field of social work and mental health.

Mental Health Systems Compared

The primary objective of this book is to provide comprehensive descriptions and make comparative evaluations of each of the mental health systems of four Western, industrialized countries.

The primary objective of this book is to provide comprehensive descriptions and make comparative evaluations of each of the mental health systems of four Western, industrialized countries. The countries selected illustrate a continuum from a highly centralized and publicly financed, national health service in Great Britain to a predominantly decentralized and more privately financed market of mental health services in the United States. In between these two contrasting types are examples of national health services and insurance programs in Norway and Canada. Contributing experts from each country begin their chapters with an overview of the geographic, demographic, political, economic, and cultural contexts in which their mental health systems are situated. Thereafter, they (a) present national data to estimate the need for mental health services, (b) describe national mental health policies and programs designed to meet their population's need, (c) indicate how mental health services are organized and delivered, and (d) discuss how their system is financed and provided resources. A common chapter outline facilitates comparisons among all four systems on relevant evaluation criteria: (a) access and equity, (b) quality and efficacy, (c) cost and efficiency, (d) financing and fairness, (e) protection and participation, and (f) population relevance. In the final section of each chapter, the authors provide recommendations for improved performance of their mental health system. In the initial chapter, the editor provides an overview, introduces the four countries selected, and defines the evaluation criteria applied by all contributing authors. The final two chapters address convergence and divergence among the four systems and provide recommendations for improvement and for future comparative studies. The intended audience includes mental health policymakers, program administrators and managers; teachers of graduate level courses relat
