Work inclusion of psychiatric patients. Community and service networks - A vast and complex legislation for disabled and disadvantaged people regulates the work inclusion of psychiatric patients. However, the implementation of this legislation - particularly in the case of mentally distressed persons - is difficult to enforce, for inclusion requires continuity and collaboration, comprising: different local mental health and social services, the non-profit sector, and the companies that take on the new "social responsibility" of integrating disabled persons. Community networks are valuable resources for implementing work and social inclusion. The author explores ways of collaboration between all stakeholders in order to strengthen social and work integration processes, based on a common culture of social inclusion.
