Mental Health Services and New Research in England: Implications for the Community Management of Schizophrenia

  • Nicholas Tarrier
  • Christine Barrowclough
Part of the International Perspectives Series: Psychiatry, Psychology, and Neuroscience book series


The implications of recent research developments into the management of schizophrenia in Salford need to be placed in the context of the health and psychiatric services that exist within Great Britain. To achieve this, a short account of the British National Health Service (NHS) and of the role of the mental health services within the NHS, especially relating to community care policy, is given, with special reference to the Salford District Health Authority.
