Barriers to accessing and receiving mental health care in Eastern Cape, South Africa

Isabell Schierenbeck, Peter Johansson, Lena M. C. Andersson, Dalena van Rooyen, Eds.: Health and Human Rights Journal, (2013)

Eleven semi-structured interviews were carried out with health professionals and administrators.
