Book description

This book provides a comprehensive overview of our understanding about the provision of emergency mental health services in an era of community-orientated care. Major research findings and theoretical models which will shape future services are described and illustrated by detailed descriptions of successful services both from Europe and North America. A multidisciplinary team of contributors detail the full range of community-based services including acute respite care, home-based care, day hospitals and family placement schemes, as well as the use of Accident and Emergency Departments and acute in-patient wards. The major factors which influence service development are also explored, including the costs of acute care, the legal framework for emergency mental health work and the views of service users. All those with an interest in or responsibility for mental health will find this insight of value.


‘… a timely publication. The editors are to be congratulated for assembling such a comprehensive volume. It should be read by all involved in psychiatry.’
