The main argument of this chapter is that the enormous political, social and economic changes experienced in Latvia since the 1980s have created pressure on psychiatrists to expand their professional boundaries and develop more inclusive concepts of mental health and mental disorders. As a result, there is an increasing discrepancy between professional and societal understandings of mental illness as evidenced through professional literature, group interviews and content analyses of printed media.
