Milligan, Christine (2000) Breaking out of the Asylum : the impact of the informal sector in a restructured mental health environment. Health and Place, 6 (3). pp. 189-200. ISSN 1873-2054Full text not available from this repository.
This paper focuses on the changing role of the voluntary sector in the provision of care and support to community-based individuals with mental ill-health (MIH) in contemporary Scotland. In doing so, it reflects on the ways in which deinstitutionalisation is contributing to changing interrelationships between the formal and informal sector, the influence of the voluntary sector in the development of the locational geographies of individuals with MIH, and factors contributing to geographical variations in access and availability of voluntary sector supports. These developments are considered within the framework of the shadow state.
