    The first aim of this book is thus to articulate different forms of good care that exist in long-term mental health care, by giving words to what happens in a variety of practices. What are the ideals that circulate there and in what kind of practices are they embedded? The second aim of this book is to reflect upon the question how to deal with this diversity in forms of good care. When the question what is good? has so many different answers, how might these differences be dealt with? Can the articulations of different ideals of good care help to point out good or better ways of improving care?
