Community care for people with psychosis: outcomes and needs for care.

Author information

  • 1Department of Psychiatry, University of Melbourne, Australia.


People with psychosis living in developed countries in the era of community-based care are likely to be socially isolated, unemployed, and have poor quality of life, despite recent advances in the treatment and understanding of psychosis. Recent work in Australia illustrates the needs for care, especially for those with complex disabilities, and even for those in contact with well-organized clinical mental health services. Insufficient evidence in two key areas impedes progress: the use of effective psychosocial interventions; and the impact of changes in the community care system. Follow-up studies of programs and interventions assessing a range of outcomes in local settings are now required to encourage professionals and the community to address these needs.
