Part of the Issues in Mental Health book series (IMH)


The last chapter dealt with mainly hospital-based services. This chapter will explore life for patients living in the community. What do service users think of GPs? What are the stresses of working? Are users helped by services to re-gain or find employment? What sort of accommodation do users want? What are the experiences users have of being unemployed and living on state benefits? The role of GPs will be examined first.
