MONSALVE, Mariano Hernández. Psychosocial rehabilitation: current perspectives and guidelines in the Psychiatric Reform. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2011, vol.16, n.3, pp.295-303. ISSN 1678-4669. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-294X2011000300013.
It describes the stages gone through psychosocial rehabilitation in Spain with special attention to parallels with the transformation of public health services that began in 1986 with the enactment of the General Health Law in 1986 and especially with the development of the Psychiatric Reform which began formally with the Ministerial Report for Psychiatric Reform (1985) and with the above GHL. We review the relevant aspects of the deployment process of new rehabilitation services, and the new stage of care following the publication of the Mental Health Strategy in the National Health System (2007), including the vocational rehabilitation of people with mental illness ending with an estimate of future prospects.
