Social rights The broad spectrum of social issues was at the heart of the EU human rights conditionality as applied in Romania.

beyond the book itself. As the last chapter showed, the antipsychiatry movement was a form of immediate self-defence for gay men and lesbians and a way in which to challenge the whole structure around models of behaviour. The Front had participants who had been both providers and clients of mental health care provision. The Front’s Anti-Psychiatry Workshop aimed its campaigns at the heart of the professional world of the established medical elite.

Mepham found that while theology students received lectures and seminars from visiting doctors, with some attending hospital courses on subjects such as mental health care, teaching hospitals made no systematic effort to allow medical students to receive lectures from theologians or other

However, a number of them help occupants who require medical attention. For instance, the CPH run by the Forum Réfugiés in Lyon collaborates with hospitals, GPs and mother and baby protection teams in the Lyon region. It also runs mental health clinics, on its premises, offering CPH occupants a diagnostic and referral service (ibid.). Apart from medical services available in many CADA and some CPH, mental health care within the state
