Secure Facilities for Mentally Impaired Patients

  • M. S. Isweran (a1) and Elizabeth M. Bardsley (a2)
Extract

Interim units are available in most of the Regions without a permanent unit. Almost all these developments appear to favour the mentally ill, and the placement of mentally impaired patients is not receiving sufficient consideration.
