Sample text

There has often been little alternative to hospital care, which in some cases has provided 'asylum' for the patient in the true sense. Yet doctors have been aware that they alone are accused of failing in their responsibility to keep patients in the community and that the interests of the patient are deemed to have been subordinated to the whims of an overrestrictive and conservative profession, paternalistic in attitude, insufficiently aware of the rights of patients and hostile to the demands of consumerism.

What is certain is that there is now a fairly frequent phenomenon of psychiatric family members who are killed by their relatives (Censis, 1982). The potential users of the mental hospitals may be divided approximately into two main categories. The first consists of subjects admitted to and treated in mental hospitals before the 1978 Act came into force; some of these are still in mental hospitals, making up the residual psychiatric group, some are in other institutions such as old people's homes or forensic hospitals, while a few have been assigned to their families or to alternative community structures.
