Abstract

Costs have come to play a larger role in mental health decision-making in Britain in recent years, but controversially. Part of the controversy stems from the concern that costs might dominate other considerations (especially quality of care and patient outcomes) when difficult policy and practice decisions are faced. Drawing on a major study of community rehabilitation of long-stay psychiatric hospital residents, this paper looks at the inter-sectoral question in community care: non-state sectors are less costly than the state sector. Higher costs were associated with better qualitative care and better outcome.
