International Handbook on Mental Health Policy

By Donna R. Kemp | Go to book overview

tarded persons is symbolic, it is the foundation for the development of future policy and administration. The author hopes to promote measures for treatment and a guaranteed livelihood for these people, and hopes that cultural and economic development will contribute to a policy of treatment and protection of livelihood for those with mental disorders.

What is hoped for the future is that there will be public enlightenment enhancing the recognition of the need for treatment and management of mental disorders. To summarize the policy statements of professor Ho Young Lee, a psychiatrist at the Medical School of Yonsei University, and the investigation report done by professor Ik Lyun Moon, of the School of Public Health, Seoul National University, we can infer that there should be enactment of a new Mental Health Law, reconsideration of the low priority of mental health programs, integration of mental health programs and general health programs, construction of health management information systems for local communities, and strengthening of mental health education ( Moon, 1989, p. 105). Especially, the health management information system should be used as a means to manage effectively and handle efficiently patients with mental disorders by dividing and coordinating the series of activities that include early identification of mentally disordered patients, consultation, treatment, rehabilitation training, and further management after return to society based on the competency level of each administrative unity and the technical level of medical organizations ( Moon, 1989, pp. 105-106).

The author believes that before Korea adopts the construction of a major health program, it needs to search for a realistic management system and implement a model program for mental health. The framework of the program, the implementation unit, should be categorized according to the level of government (city and county), but the patient treatment system should be categorized according to the level and area of medical treatment. Also, withdrawal of mentally handicapped from the concentration camp should be pursued steadily, the mental health program should be included in the primary health program, and health centers should be the main body for primary service provision in such a program. A person in charge of mental health should be stationed in mental health centers, and by making this the main treatment point, localization of the mental health program should be enhanced. Many medical facilities should be changed so that a patient system based on level of care can be established. An effective patient system should be established with primary treatments by public health doctors, mental health workers, health treatment workers, and private psychiatrists; secondary treatment by the hospitalized health centers, the sanatoriums, the hospitals of local corporations, and the departments of psychiatry in the comprehensive hospitals; and tertiary treatment by the national mental hospitals, the university hospitals, and the large-sized mental hospitals.
