Multi-centred day units in a psychiatric rehabilitation service

Extract

Psychiatric day care has expanded considerably over the past 20 years. Day hospitals may serve as alternatives to short-stay in-patient units or speed discharge from them. Day services are also necessary to ensure appropriate support for patients with chronic disability, especially chronic functional psychosis, if they are to remain in a community setting (these are often called day hospitals to ensure NHS support). The present paper focuses on this latter group and describes the characteristics of day attenders in a service that has developed a multi-facility approach to community support.
