Italian Psychiatry

  • S. S. Johl (a1)
Extract

The dramatic changes in Italian psychiatry since 1978 when the practice of Democratic Psychiatry was officially started has had a controversial response from both inside and outside Italy. In an attempt to know more about the system that made sweeping changes in Italian psychiatry, five Italian psychiatrists and psychologists were invited to Sheffield for a two-week exposition of films, paintings, photographs, lectures and meetings on the art of Democratic Psychiatry from Italy. This was the final leg of the visit to England, after London and Manchester. The events were organized in a truly varied and democratic manner by the University Department of Psychiatry, the Division of Continuing Education at Sheffield University, and the Graves Art Gallery, in co-operation with MIND, the District Health Authority, the Family and Community Services Department, and staff from hospitals in Chesterfield, Doncaster and Sheffield. The aim of the exposition was to provide an opportunity to discuss the prospects for changes in the mental health and mental handicap services in the light of the Italian experience.
