Department for Behavioural Healthcare
With an increasing population comes an increase of the many different aspects of people living in a modern society. This small truth is what has driven much of the healthcare community to become what they are today and provide their patients with the services that they need. However, one of the aspects of living in a modern society is that there are bound to be those people who cannot care for themselves in at least some respects.
Because of this, there has been a department for behavioural healthcare (or something like it) setup in nearly every populous area. These departments not only provide at least some degree of care for people in the area, but they are also responsible for the oversight of most institutions that service those who use government assistance. Also, there are some that have designed plans and programs to help out the people in the community that may have little to nothing and get them started on a path to better their lives.
For many people, these departments are a godsend in that they can actually improve the quality of life for anyone who needs them. However, a practice is in the process of treating an individual, it can also give them one more aspect of compliance that needs to be understood and followed before they can offer the best treatment plans. Additionally, these departments may put a strain on the taxes of a given area as they are generally all publicly funded and require at least some support from those people living in the community.
