Abstract

This report has been produced to support the work of the Schizophrenia Commission during its year-long inquiry into the care, treatment and outcomes for people with schizophrenia and psychosis. This illness is highly distressing, with a 15-20 year mortality gap compared to the general population. The human costs are immense, but so too are the financial costs. For example, the cost of schizophrenia to English society is £11.8 billion per year.
