"advances in psychiatric treatment"

C Bonsack, S Morandi, J Favrod, P Conus
Stigma is a "natural" social reaction, partly unconscious and automatic towards "different" and "vulnerable" populations. Suspicion of danger, unemployment, excluded from society, locked in hospital, assaulted or killed are the possible consequences of mental disorders' stigma. Despite advances in psychiatric treatments, the stigma of the "madness" remains a barrier to access to recovery. The stigmatization process is more complex than simple labeling, and leads to discrimination and loss of social power.

We present the ideology and the different models of psychiatric day-care units which are becoming widely used in treatment, especially for rehabilitation of chronic mental patients...
