Overview

Across the world, cities are becoming larger, as populations drift from the country into urban areas. At the same time, the mentally ill are leaving the mental hospital, and new forms of care are being found in the community. The best ways in which service for the mentally ill can be organized in the community are still a matter for debate, and as cities become larger problems may become greater.
In this book services in London are compared with those in ten other cities - Amsterdam, Baltimore, Bangalore, Copenhagen, Kobe, Madison, Porto Alegre, Sydney, Teheran and Verona - which all have mental health services with interesting and useful features. The reader can find examples of some of the best of the ideas and practices in modern mental health services. It indicates directions that have been traveled, and describes arrangements that work in practice.
The conference at which these findings were presented included users of these services at a scale never before attempted, and dialogues between service providers and users are reported. The chapters describing the services in each city consist of the background briefing papers prepared by each city, up-dated by each set of authors in the light of what they saw and heard at the conference. In particular, they have included sections on how they see probable future developments in their cities.The book is accompanied by an optional videotape describing the services in each city, and containing the views of users from round the world.
