Current Developments in Hospital and Community Services for the Mentally Ill

  • J. K. Wing


The problems dealt with in this paper are common to developed and to developing countries. The needs for various kinds of treatment and care of people who become severely and/or chronically mentally ill are much the same in all parts of the world. How the needs are met will, of course, vary according to tradition, culture and local resources; the same principles can be applied in many different ways. No one ideal pattern of psychiatric services can be recommended for use everywhere.
