Centres for mental health care : target group policy, financing and monitoring

Dutch speaking chamber on January 10, 2012

The Flemish authorities do not have a clear view of the objective pa-tients’ care needs in the operational area of mental health care centres (centra voor geestelijke gezondheidszorg - CGG). The CGG’s target group and attention policy is consequently insufficiently backed up and its effectiveness is not guaranteed. The financing of the CGG is not transparent enough and not all conditions ensuring a quality monitoring of the centres are fulfilled.
