Wednesday, October 11, 2017

Presenter: Professor John R. Williams
Title: The Mental Health Infrastructure: An International Perspective
Details: There often exists a significant disparity between (1) treatment guarantees proffered by case law, statutes, and regulations, and (2) treatment opportunities limited by funding, geography, and bureaucracy. Mental health clinicians who attempt to commit patients civilly or refer them for outpatient services often learn too late that legally sanctioned options simply cannot be realized, due to such factors as downsized facilities, staffing shortfalls, budgetary woes, or limited transportation resources. This presentation describes the current status of the mental health infrastructure in the United Kingdom and invites comparison with the experiences of PIPATL attendees.
