Community leadership for mental health is of increasing importance in developing areas of the world. As changes such as urbanisation and indus trialisation affect these areas, their mental health problems are becoming more apparent. These include conditions requiring either curative or cus todial care in an often distant hospital, but probably most others are more appropriately managed by inte grating mental health into primary health care, closer to patients' homes (Giel & Harding, 1976; Harding, 1980; WHO, 1984a).
