The prevalence of mental and behavioural problems appears to be increasing. A greater emphasis has been placed on providing acute care for mental health patients in general hospitals (with a psychiatric ward), rather than in stand-alone psychiatric hospitals. Further, subacute care is increasingly being provided in community settings, rather than in hospitals. This provides social inclusion and support to recovery from acute illness, while also reducing costs associated with institutional care.
