To 1948

The Second World War facilitated many important changes in social work and mental health. The most relevant were as follows.

1. The introduction of therapeutic communities for soldiers during the war, the abolition of the death penalty for 'shell-shocked' soldiers, and the creation of a universal psychosocial service for evacuees during the war. This facilitated a more accepting attitude towards those experiencing mental distress in general.

2. The introduction of a universal National Health Service in 1948, which included mental health services, enabled many people to seek and receive psychiatric intervention earlier than was previously possible.

3. The repeal of the Poor Law in 1948 reduced the stigma of using local authority social services.
