Abstracts of Research:

Mental health policy trends in Israel: Factors facilitating and hindering reforms towards community mental health service system: The objective of this study has been to assess mental health policy in Israel. Using a comparative approach, it evaluates what where the factors that hindered attempts to reform the system towards community mental health services and what might have been the factors that could have facilitated the transformation of the system.

Severely mentally ill persons in Israel. Scope and nature of the problem: The objective of this research has been to define the population of chronically mentally ill persons in Israel, assess its major characteristics and estimate the size of this population in the country. Two major criteria have been used for defining the population: hospitalization history and functional disability. In addition, chronic mentally ill persons who had not been hospitalized or received disability pensions were defined and their number in the country was estimated.

Mental health rehabilitation reform in Israel (2000). The objectives of this study have been to study the outcome of the implementation of the Rehabilitation in the Community of the mentally Disabled Persons Law, enacted in 2000, and its impact on the mental health service system in the country.

Israel mental health (insurance) reform (2015). The aim of the study has been to examine the advantages and risks associated with the transfer of responsibility for mental health services to the health funds (HMOs) and their integration into the general medical service system. The project analyzes the issues confronting those in charge of its implementation and the regulators, and recommends the appropriate modifications or ways of dealing with the issues and problems that may arise in the course of the reform’s implementation.

The changing role of the social worker in the mental health service system/ This study surveys the social workers employed in the mental health service system with respect to their assignments and how they view their current and desired role.
