The National Health Service could be saving millions of pounds each year by investing in early intervention services for people with mental illnesses, according to a new report from the London School of Economics.
The report by LSE and the charity Rethink Mental Illness revealed that for every £1 spent on intervention treatments for people with psychosis and schizophrenia, the NHS could save £15 on expensive hospital care later on.
It claims that "too much" of the current budget to treat psychosis is spent on expensive inpatient care, rather than on community care which could stop people from getting seriously unwell in the first place.
