During the second half of the twentieth century, mental health policy advocates reacted against institutional care, claiming that community care and treatment would improve the lives of people with mental disorders. Once the exclusive province of state governments, the federal government moved into this policy arena after World War II. Policies ranged from those focused on mental disorders, to those that focused more broadly on health and social welfare. In this book, the authors trace how an ever-changing coalition of mental health experts, patients’ rights activists, and politicians envisioned this community-based system of psychiatric services. They show how policies shifted emphasis from radical reform to incremental change. Many have benefited from this shift, but many are left without the care they require.
