|Deinstitutionalisation (or deinstitutionalization) is the process of replacing long-stay psychiatric hospitals with less isolated community mental health services for those diagnosed with a mental disorder or developmental disability. In the late 20th century, it led to the closure of many psychiatric hospitals, as patients were increasingly cared for at home or in halfway houses, clinics and regular hospitals.|
* Deinstitutionalisation works in two ways. The first focuses on reducing the population size of mental institutions by releasing patients, shortening stays, and reducing both admissions and readmission rates. The second focuses on reforming psychiatric care to reduce (or avoid encouraging) feelings of dependency, hopelessness and other behaviors that make it hard for patients to adjust to a life outside of care.The modern deinstitutionalisation movement was initiated by three factors:* A socio-political movement for community mental health services and open hospitals;
* The advent of psychiatric drugs able to manage psychotic episodes;
* Financial imperatives (in the US specifically, to shift costs from state to federal budgets)The movement to reduce institutionalisation was met with wide acceptance in Western countries, though its effects have been the subject of many debates. Some experts, such as E. Fuller Torrey, have argued that deinstitutionalisation was a mistake, while others, such as Thomas Szasz, argue it did not provide enough freedom for patients. Others have argued that it was an improvement on the system that existed before. Psychiatrist Leon Eisenberg has argued that it has generally been beneficial for psychiatric patients, while noting that some were left homeless or without care.
