Long-term mental health relationships: Community mental health

Lynne Adamson

    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)

    Abstract

    Living with mental illness is a challenge for many people and creates the need for comprehensive health and community services. Over recent decades, mental health services have transformed from institutional to community-based care, with a clear transition from custodial care to person-centred treatment and support services. Health, housing, rehabilitation and recreational services work towards supporting the least restrictive environment for people who live with mental illness.
