Abstract

Integration concept have been prominent in every national mental health policy statement since 1992 . With increasing specialisation and service development the need for integration continues to grow. Efforts at system reform often fail due to a clear understanding of what integration means, and a patchwork approach to implementation. This workshop, referencing contemporary integration literature, presents a framework in which integration can be supported within a fractured health care system.
Building on current concepts of integration we examine primary care research and propose a temporal dimension and an intensity dimension to integration. This workshop examines the utility of four dimensions of integration (horizontal, vertical, intensity and progression) to assist the practical implementation of integrated primary mental health care.
