ABSTRACT
The article presents a study on the condition of discharged long-term psychiatric patients living in the communities of York, England. There are three research approaches used to monitor psychiatric patients discharged from mental hospitals, however, they only offer limited information on the real experiences of such patients. The study conducted in three mental hospitals in York involves two samples, the long-stay group and the elderly confused group. Results show that most patients belonging to the long-stay group have adjusted to their respective communities, but those belonging to the elderly confused group were less-supported compared to the long-stay group. It was also revealed that a great complexity of care exists in the community of York.
