CALVO, José Carmona  and  NORIEGA, Francisco del Río. Historical analysis of the psychiatric reform in Andalucia: mental health reform without asylums. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2011, vol.16, n.3, pp.341-352. ISSN 1678-4669.

The following paper talks about the transformation process of psychiatrics  resources in Andalucia, Spain. This second part analyzes the development that took place after the disappearance of the organism created to carry out the reform. It offers a critical approach to the incorporation of the mental health resources into the general sanitary system, to the complete extinction of the psychiatric hospitals, to the creation of specific social services for people suffering from serious mental disorder and to the present situation of the "reformed" mental health, informing about the goals and difficulties of each phase of these long twenty years: 1991-2011.

Keywords : psychiatric reform; mental health; psychiatric hospitals; serious mental disorder.
