Excerpt
Introduction The study of mental ill-health today is remarkable for its freshness of approach to old problems. The mental patient is no longer seen as an individual apart from society who should be isolated in gaunt, lonely barrack-like institutions far from towns, but as a member of the community who should be reintegrated into it as soon as possible, and who will benefit from sympathetic understanding instead of strait jackets and from surroundings that will not be, as they so often are, in dismal contrast to those in which he has been living. Hospitals have been thrown open '' ; patients are being encouraged to go into hospital voluntarily; the amount of restraint and of seclusion has been greatly reduced; attempts have been made to persuade the patients to organize themselves; and there is a movement towards using psychiatric our-patient departments at local general hospitals as bases for the home treatment of patients. 4 paper in this issue of the Bulletin by Sivadon, from France, describes the successful conversion of an old-fashioned lunatic asylum into a modern mental hospital J$-ith treatment for the patients based on these new views.
