The development of community based adult mental health services — a research contribution

  • Jackie Powell (a1) and Robin Lovelock (a1)
Extract

The desire to provide care and services for people with mental health problems in a community context, rather than in large institutions, is a long-established feature of Government policy. In the more local context of the Portsmouth and South East Hampshire District Health Authority, a strategy of decentralising both the organisation and the delivery of services for adults with mental health problems began to be implemented early in 1986. Five multi-disciplinary area community mental health teams would work with and alongside other service-providers in their localities to provide a range of support, including residential, day and other community and domiciliary services.
