This project is another example of successful cooperation between IAN and Global Initiative in Psychiatry . The project goal is to create a functional regional network of accessible community mental health and social care services in the community of southern Serbia, as a model for the rest of the country, which supports the integration of people with mental illness into society, and increases the involvement of users of mental health services and their relatives in the service delivery.
