Abstract:This collected volume is about the changing trends in mental health care and research in Ghana. The first section of the book includes a brief history of the Department of Psychiatry of the University of Ghana Medical School and of mental health care in Ghana, and a revised situation analysis of mental health services and legislation from 2005.
