Patients released after Wyatt: where did they go?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The author investigated the posthospital outcome of a random sample of 228 patients released from Bryce Hospital between June 1972 and June 1973. Approximately 72 per cent of the ex-patients participating in the follow-up study had been released from the hospital to a household containing a member of the family. At the time of the follow-up interviews, conducted between May 1975 and June 1976, approximately 63 per cent of the ex-patients were found to be living in noninstitutional settings. The study also found that a majority of the patients had not been readmitted to a state psychiatric facility since their release.
