Mental Health Care Reform in the Czech and Slovak Republics,

Mental Health Care Reform R. Scheffler, M. Potůček (editors)
Karolinum, Praha 2008

This book analyzes the needs, processes and challenges of mental health care reform in the Czech Republics and Slovakia. Comparing these two countries which used to be one state until the end of 1992, it identifies many obstacles to ongoing reforms: low funding levels distributed in inefficient ways, not always reaching those with greatest needs; the reliance on psychiatrists and reluctance to expand the role of other staff groups; and particularly the lack of information for appropriate decision making and poor systems of quality control.
