Leadership development for mental health: an educational workshop in Africa

  • Barry Checkoway (a1) and John Orley (a2)
Extract

These include conditions requiring either curative or cus todial care in an often distant hospital, but probably most others are more appropriately managed by inte grating mental health into primary health care, closer to patients' homes (Giel & Harding, 1976; Harding, 1980; WHO, 1984a).
