Mental health the Czech Republic: current problems, trends and future developments

Journal article citation:
Journal of Public Mental Health, 5(2), June 2006, pp.43-47.

The Czech Republic suffers many of the problems reported in other Central European and Eastern European countries with respect to the care, treatment and prevention of mental ill health. Most psychiatric care is provided in long-stay hospitals and the transition to a community-based service has yet to be made. Mental health services suffer from chronic under-investment and there is a lack of mental health legislation protecting patients' rights and autonomy. This article looks at the background and development of mental health care in the Czech Republic.

Caring for mentally ill people in Europe

Journal article citation:
British Medical Journal, 5.11.94, 1994, pp.1218-1221.
British Medical Association

Despite legislation to harmonise mental health practice throughout Europe and convergence in systems of training there remains an extraordinary diversity of psychiatric practice in Europe. Approaches to tackling substance misuse vary among nations; statistics on psychiatric morbidity are affected by different approaches to diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric disorders; attitudes towards mental illness show definite international differences. Everywhere, though, mental health care for patients with psychotic illness is a "cinderella service", and there is a general move towards care falling increasingly on the family and the community.
