R. Mester, E. Witztum

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Israel has undergone rapid change and development during the last few decades, and extraordinary advances have been made in the field of psychiatry. At the same time, however, it is this progress that has outdated certain methods and styles of public service planning. Universal accessibility to good treatment is put at risk by the centralized planning that is more concerned with bed utilization and less so with community services, now the heart of the psychiatric system. While general health services are undergoing reorganization, progress has been slow in the restructuring of the psychiatric system.
