Abstract

This text looks at the issues surrounding the "care in the community" approach to mental health welfare. It describes two community housing projects, their aims, philosophy, staffing and resources in relation to local mental health, and provides insights into the structure of individuals' social networks. Vignettes of the residents also provide an understanding of the lives of people with mental health problems
