This book explores how we can preserve the integrity of mental health provision in an age when community safety is dominant. Emphasising throughout the mentally disordered in the community, the book examines existing controls and services - compulsory detention, hospitals, supervised discharge, supervision registers, and so on - as well as new developments such as dual diagnosis and questions surrounding treatability.
