About the Series

Henry Maudsley, founder of the Maudsley Hospital, was the most prominent English psychiatrist of his generation.

The Maudsley Hospital was united with the Bethlem Royal Hospital in 1948 and its medical school renamed the Institute of Psychiatry. It is now entrusted with the duty of advancing psychiatry by teaching and research. The South London and Maudsley (SLAM) NHS Trust, together with the Institute of Psychiatry, are jointly known as The Maudsley.

The monograph series reports work carried out at The Maudsley. Some of the monographs are directly concerned with clinical problems; others, less obviously relevant, are in scientific fields that are cultivated for the furtherance of psychiatry.
