Case report

The complexity of repatriating psychiatric patients

M.A.H. Monden

This article describes the method by which the repatriation to the Netherlands of psychiatric patients living abroad is carried out. On the basis of one case, namely that of a psychotic male with low Hb and fear of HIV, it is shown that the repatriation of psychiatric patients can be extremely complex and that a psychiatrist’s active involvement in the patient’s repatriation can be extremely important.
