Network Community Mental Health Care in North-West Derbyshire

  • Malcolm Peet (a1)
Extract

The community mental health movement remains an important force in American psychiatry and a shift towards community orientated mental health care is now being actively promoted in Britain. Nevertheless, concepts of community mental health care are not clearly defined, and the term has been variously misused, as a label applied to existing facilities without real change in philosophy, as a political justification for closing large mental hospitals, and as a platform for the propagation of anti-medical ideology. The development of community orientated services involves a change in role for the psychiatrist, which many find difficult to accept. Psychiatrists have been warned that they are at risk of being left behind in the current moves towards community mental health care in Britain.
