Staff structures and support

  • Steve Morgan
Part of the Therapy in Practice Series book series (TPS)


Any discussion of the staffing of a community mental health service must begin with the basic premise that it will be constituted from a disparate range of people and agencies, professional and non-professional, geographically separated, performing structured and unstructured tasks. The quality of communication between the constituent parts may also be variable, they may well operate from a basis of very different motivations and lay claim to their different rights for recognition through statements of philosophy and operational policy.
