Description:
Following the adoption by the Government of the white paper on psychiatric services 'Planning for the Future" the Eastern Health Board set out its psychiatric policy in the report "Proposed development of a community based Adult Psychiatric Service". This Report outlined the strategy for the development of community services and the transfer of resources from the institutions to allow this development to take place. The Report established the service ethos whereby the community was seen as the service base whilst accepting the fact that residential facilities were required as an adjunct to a comprehensive range of community services: Psychiatric and community care catchment areas were aligned and the range of infrastructural facilities together with the staff necessary to support each catchment area and its associated sector were identified. The Report also envisaged the close co-ordination of services between the Statutory and Voluntary Agencies and support groups in the community. In this way the Report was attempting to create an environment whereby persons with a psychiatric disability could live an independent and productive life in the community with supports appropriate to their level of disability.
