Psychiatry and the community in Slovenia: an outsider's view

Journal of Public Mental Health

ISSN: 1746-5729

Publication date: 1 June 2006


This paper looks at current developments in the provision of community mental health services in the context of the history of the psychiatric system in Slovenia, based on ten years of experience working with non‐governmental organisations and the School of Social Work in Slovenia. It looks at what can be learned from both the strengths and weaknesses of what is happening in Slovenia and the implications for broader debates about the future of public mental health and the treatment of people with mental health problems.
