It also takes a village: developing community mental health

Journal article citation:
International Social Work, 45(3), July 2002, pp.305-314.

Interviews with practitioners and policy-makers in Ghana, West Africa, as well as a review of local projects and publications, comprise an attempt to describe and contrast our various approaches.
