::. Mental Health

1st edition: November 2008

With an introduction by Benedetto Saraceno

Αn interesting overlap of social psychiatry and social anthropology


Twenty years of intense and exhausting studying, planning and practicing in the field of public health have produced this remarkable book, which informs, establishes, considers, teaches and at last celebrates a successful accomplishment.

B. Saraceno

 


The idea of community as an institutional entity but also as a social and anthropological concept has served as the theoretical framework of this book, offering the possibility for studying both approaches of the respected scientific fields.

The contents of the book bring out the variety in defining and understanding phenomena such as health and mental health, illness and mental illness, prejudice and culture. The implementation of psychiatric reform in Euboea, which in its time (1988) was modern and radical, initiated more psychiatric reforms in Greece.

The scientists through personal experiences focus on:

• The complexity of the project
• The community’s prejudices and opposition to the new concepts of mental illness and the efforts to remove the social exclusion and stigma of the patients.
• The abhorrence and loathing the first deinstitutionalized patients, natives of Euboea, experienced upon their arrival from the State Psychiatric Hospital of Leros.
• The understanding of the structure and function of the community of Euboea through a historical and ethnographic account.
• The coexistence of a traditional form of social organization with more modern ones.
• The innovative principles of mental health that do not include confinement to a psychiatric institution.

This book, through the Euboea experience, poses political and scientific questions regarding social and institutional practices. It also examines and re-evaluates the outcome of different approaches on psychiatric reform in Greece.
