SERVIZIO SOCIALE E TUTELA DELLA SALUTE MENTALE: LE PROSPETTIVE APERTE (E NON ANCORA REALIZZATE) DALLA LEGGE N. 180/78 / SOCIAL WORK AND PRESERVATION OF SANITY: THE PERSPECTIVES OPENED (AND NOT YET ENACTED) BY LAW No. 180/78

Cataldo Lopardo

Abstract


This paper aims to give to all those social workers involved in the field of mental health protection a key of interpretation about the principles contained in the Basaglia bill of 1978. Firstly, this article analyses the development of the profession of the social worker during the deinstitutionalisation movement of the Seventies, focusing in particular on the effects deriving from the legislative discussion. Then, the current provisions of the territorial Districts of Mental Health (DSM) on health services will have examined, shedding light on the relative inadequate health and social care integration. Finally, it will have proposed the concept of the intervention on health determinants as a cross-cutting approach which aims to guide the practice of social service profession: the de-institutionalisation of everyday life governing the promotion of mental health.
