The Economics of Mental Health Care by Ruth F.G. Williams
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This title was first published in 2001. This original study of mental health care presents a conceptual approach to the nature of the industry's multiple outputs. It pays special attention to the economic role of government, and also uses conventional economic theory to analyze the fact that the needs and wants of people with mental illnesses and their care-givers are frequently neglected.
