  title={Long-term psychiatric care in Papua New Guinea},
  author={Fiona S. Noble},
Papua New Guinea is being forced to rapidly adjust to large changes with consequent effects on the mental well being of the population and mental health services. This paper describes my experiences and reflections on 14 months spent working as a psychiatrist between April 1991 and July 1992 in Papua New Guinea and describes Laloki Psychiatric Centre; the only long-stay psychiatric hospital in Papua New Guinea.
