Search methods: We searched the Cochrane Schizophrenia Group's Trials Register last update search 10 April 2015. During the 12 months study period, 96% of controls were admitted, 51% more than once. We identified no data on staff satisfaction, carer input, complications with medication or number of relapses. Assessments of service use, costs and outcomes were conducted at referral, 4, 11 and 20 months. Conclusions: The findings provide support for psychiatric nurse home follow-up for patients with depression after discharge from an inpatient setting.
Each group contained 41 patients who were assessed at baseline and at 6, 12 and 18 months by an independent research psychologist. This drop was more marked in the West sector compared to the East. As the Health of the Nation's key area handbook on mental illness indicates, a consensus now exists about the range and scale of services required in each local area. Acute crisis respite care William H Sledge, Jack Tebes and Jaak Rakfeldt; 13. A methodology for turning data from 'Alternatives Projection' exercises into workable health service plans would in turn enhance the value of a standardised instrument. Data including demographics, date of admission, diagnosis at admission and sector of admission were retrospectively collected from a mental health register of hospital admissions between 1995 and 2002. Conversely, the potential of psychosocial therapies in such patients has not been fully exploited.

Psychiatric emergencies in the casualty department Sonia Johnson and Howard Baderman; 12. Present evidence suggests that case management also increases duration of hospital admissions, but this is not certain. Suicide prevention David Kingdon and Rachel Jenkins; 7. All those with an interest in or responsibility for mental health will find this insight of value.
The majority of studies had a high risk of selective reporting. We aimed to review and evaluate this approach and recommend ways in which it might be developed.

We studied 10,025 participants in the population-based National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey I Epidemiologic Follow-up Study who were alive and interviewed in 1982 and had complete data for the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale. The internal validity of many of the studies was compromised by shortcomings in design and performance and generalizability limited by selection of patient populations. Life skills programmes, emphasising the needs associated with independent functioning, are often a part of the rehabilitation process. No data on staff satisfaction, carer input, complications with medication or number of relapses were available. We searched the Cochrane Schizophrenia Group Trials Register June 2010.
