This thought-provoking book describes one week's activities in a day centre for the mentally handicapped in North London as a case study for a wider analysis of the position of the mentally handicapped in modern society. How can their time at the centre be used to foster the ideas of competence, creativity and community? The clients and workers speak for themselves about their experiences and offer a positive and hopeful assessment of the true personal and practical potential of the mentally ill.
