  • 2. Sectorisa?on   •  Establishment  of  geographical  catchment   areas  with  dedicated  mental  health  staff   providing  services  to  all  pa?ents  living  in  the   area   •  Fondamental  element  in  the  planning  of   community  services  in  most  Western   european  countries  since  the  1980’s  
  • 3. The  principles   •  Con?nuity  of  care  by  a  team  of  professionals   (  nurses,  psychologists,  psychiatrists,  social   workers..)   •  Treatment  is  to  be  provided  as  early  as  possible   •  Geographical,  cultural  and  social  proximity   •  Going  from  the  mental  hospital  to  the  community   •  Integrate  preven?on,  treatment  and  and   rehabilita?on   •  Hence:  two  different  meanings  (  geographical  and   organiza?on  of  care  )  
  • 4. A  bit  of  history      Adolf  Meyer  (  1915  )  ar?culates  the  concept  of   mental  health  services  closely  iden?fied  with  a   community     Reemphasized  as  a  basic  premise  of   deins&tu&onaliza&on  with  responsability  of  care   transferred  from  large  state  ins?tu?ons  to  local   community-­‐based  organiza?ons  accountable  for   the  provision  of  services     First  administra?ve  text  (‘  circulaire’)  in  France  in   1960  
  • 5. S.  Johnson    and  G.  Thornicro[   (  1993  )   •  Progressively  from  1959  to  1985   •  No  na?onal  decision,  but  installed  by  health  districts   •  63%  of  cases  :  one  team   •  10%  of  cases:  dis?nc?on  between  hospital  and   community  teams   •  Tyrer  (  1985,  1989  )  and  Hansson  in  Sweden(  1987  )   show  an  effect  on  the  number  and  the  length  of   hospital  stays  as  well  as  the  number  of  compulsory   admissions
