The Organization of mental health services: societal and community systems
Organizational analysts have become increasingly interested in mental health systems. This book is designed to influence the direction of future research and stimulate additional work in this important and rapidly changing area. The book first looks at health service organization at the macro-level, applying concepts from organizational theory and looking at existing data in this area. The focus then shifts to the micro-level, describing empirical studies of community level services.
