Care and treatment outside the setting of mental hospitals have been termed community psychiatry. This paper, based largely on publications on this subject in the IJP, discusses work on development of mental health services outside the hospitals, National and District Mental Health Programs, some accounts of Indian families, alternative modes of treatment in communities and a few miscellaneous issues. Very few papers are data driven and most of them are descriptive and opinionated.
