UNSPECIFIED (1993) A NEW COMMUNITY MENTAL-HEALTH TEAM BASED IN PRIMARY CARE - A DESCRIPTION OF THE SERVICE AND ITS EFFECT ON SERVICE USE IN THE 1ST YEAR. BRITISH JOURNAL OF PSYCHIATRY, 162 . pp. 375-384. ISSN 0007-1250Full text not available from this repository.
A new community multidisciplinary team based in primary care is described and the experience of the first year discussed. The effect the team has had on the use of psychiatric services in its first year was studied. There was a threefold increase in the rate of inception to care, leading to a doubling in the prevalence of treated psychiatric disorder. There has been a reduction in the demands made on the hospital out-patient services, but no change in the use of in-patient resources or emergency contacts.
