Few countries can provide adequate health services for all the mentally ill, yet none have developed a rational system to decide who should be treated. This innovative book considers ways to resolve this dilemma. The questions are clear: What should the criteria be for deployment of scarce treatment resources? How do we determine and apply such criteria? What are the ethical implications? In this pioneering work, an international team of eminent psychiatrists, epidemiologists, health administrators, economists and health planners examine these questions. This volume is divided into four parts: Part I. Unmet Need: Defining the Problem; Part II. Unmet Need: General Problems and Solutions; Part III. Unmet Need in People with Specific Disorders; and Part IV. Unmet Need: Specific Issues.

    Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book considers ways to resolve the imbalance between the demand and supply of mental health services. Treatment services in most countries reach only a minority of people identified as suffering from a mental disorder. Few countries can provide adequate health services for all the mentally ill, yet none has developed a rational system to decide who should be treated. The questions are clear. Could we develop a staged treatment process to reach all in need? If not, how do we decide who to treat? What should the criteria be for deployment of scarce treatment resources? How do we determine such criteria? What are the ethical implications of applying such criteria? In this pioneering work, an international team of eminent psychiatrists, epidemiologists, health administrators, economists and health planners examine these questions. The result will inform and encourage all concerned with the equitable provision of mental health care. Seller Inventory # APC9780521027236
