Institutionalization and Deinstitutionalization
To assess impact of deinstitutionalization of mental health care, we studied life expectancy for people with hospitalization or early retirement pension for mental disorders in — in Finland. Life expectancy increased for people with schizophrenia and other psychoses, mood disorders and neurotic disorders, but decreased for people with substance use disorders. Deinstitutionalization and decentralization of mental health services did not affect life expectancy negatively. Policy measures to control adverse effects of alcohol and substance abuse have failed. In most developed countries, mental health services have been transformed from hospital-centred to integrated community-based services. Social inclusion and empowerment of people with mental disorders has gradually replaced institutional care and paternalistic attitudes.
Deinstitutionalization, the mass exodus of mentally ill persons from state hospitals into the community, was accomplished in the United States during the seventh and eighth decades of the twentieth century. The process has taken away from persons with long-term, severe mental illness the almost total asylum from the pressures of the world and the care, however imperfect, that they received in these institutions. The central ethical question is: Does society not have an obligation to provide the care and treatment that they need in the community? The fact that a significant proportion of the severely and persistently mentally ill population is now living in the streets, in jails, and in other squalid conditions is evidence that adequate community care has not been provided. Moreover, it may be that some mentally ill persons who cannot be effectively treated in the community have been deinstitutionalized. Does society not have an obligation to correct this situation as well? Before the current era of deinstitutionalization, persons with long-term, severe mental illness were usually institutionalized for life in large state mental hospitals.
Understanding psychiatric institutionalization: a conceptual review
Deinstitutionalization was a government policy that moved mental health patients out of state-run institutions and into federally funded community mental health centers. It began in the s as a way to improve the treatment of the mentally ill while also cutting government budgets. In , the number peaked at , patients or 0. Between and , roughly , mentally ill patients were discharged from state hospitals. That lowered the number to only 72, patients.
Despite its inclusion as a key aspect of successful mental health care service provision by the World Health Organization, there exists a lack of consensus regarding the definition, key components and implementation of deinstitutionalisation. National care standards from 10 European countries and World Health Organization recommendations were used to identify items for the tool. A draft version was reviewed by an international expert panel and assessed for test-retest reliability and internal consistency. Once a final version had been agreed, progress towards deinstitutionalisation was assessed for 30 European countries. Country total as well as individual item scores were described and compared.
Posted in Continued Evidence-Based Education. As a policy, deinstitutionalization mandated a shift in the caring of individuals with mental illness from state run environments to the community. Deinstitutionalization as a whole consists of the sum of its parts, meaning it is not just one specific action that caused the mass decline in state run psychiatric facilities for the mentally ill, but several actions and policy changes occurring in roughly the same time interval. Furthermore, its goals were achieved through multiple initiatives, at both macro and micro levels. The purpose of this paper is to critically examine this multifaceted approach toward reducing the number of long term mentally ill cared for by the states. It also will examine how deinstitutionalization has impacted the current rates of mental illness and the current initiatives aimed at reducing the number of mentally ill incarcerated.
In clinical and abnormal psychology , institutionalization or institutional syndrome refers to deficits or disabilities in social and life skills, which develop after a person has spent a long period living in mental hospitals , prisons , or other remote institutions. In other words, individuals in institutions may be deprived whether unintentionally or not of independence and of responsibility, to the point that once they return to "outside life" they are often unable to manage many of its demands;   it has also been argued that institutionalized individuals become psychologically more prone to mental health problems. The term institutionalization can also be used to describe the process of committing an individual to a mental hospital or prison or to institutional syndrome; thus the phrase "X is institutionalized" may mean either that X has been placed in an institution, or that X is suffering the psychological effects of having been in an institution for an extended period of time. In Europe and North America, the trend of putting the mentally ill into mental hospitals began as early as the 17th century,  and hospitals often focused more on "restraining" or controlling inmates than on curing them,  although hospital conditions improved somewhat with movements for human treatment, such as moral management.

De-institutionalisation in psychiatry - both sides of the coin. De-institutionalisation refers to the depopulation of large psychiatric institutions, which was an important component of mental healthcare policy beginning in Europe and the USA in the middle to late 20th century.
It described the process of closure or downsizing of large psychiatric hospitals and the establishment of alternative services in the community. Yet, there is a lack of clarity on what exactly the concept of institutionalization means in present-day psychiatry. This review aims to identify the meaning of psychiatric institutionalization since the early s to present-day.

The Origins of Deinstitutionalization

В ушах у нее раздавался непрекращающийся звон, а все тело словно онемело. Хаос, царивший в комнате оперативного управления, воспринимался ею как отдаленный гул. Люди на подиуме не отрываясь смотрели на экран. Агент Смит начал доклад. - По вашему приказу, директор, - говорил он, - мы провели в Севилье два дня, выслеживая мистера Энсея Танкадо.
