Mental Health Care in many countries is multiply-fragmented. Amongst the players are a variety of professional groups, many different community organizations for service-users and caregivers, as well as commercial enterprises involved in mental heath issues. This chapter, in the recently-published book “Chimes of Time: Wounded Health Professionals Essays on Recovery” (edited by Bruce Kirkcaldy) is my attempt to analyze this confused and uncoordinated area of health care, to challenge (respectfully) the various participants, to suggest ways in which they can start to work together in areas where they have common cause, and to engage in serious, courteous, and rational discourse in the areas where they have different views. I also include the publishers flyer for the book as a whole.
