The Cost of Non-treatment

Abstract

There are large treatment gaps in relation to schizophrenia across all European countries, either because the illness is not recognised or because the response from treatment and care services is inadequate - not evidence-based. This could be because of resource or other constraints. The consequence can be very damaging indeed for individuals with schizophrenia, their families and for the wider society. In this talk I will set out the economic consequences of not identifying or responding appropriately to schizophrenia. Evidence will be drawn from a number of studies, but will be channelled to show new findings in relation to both England and Czech Republic. These figures add to the argument for earlier and better treatment, to benefit everybody including public and private budgets.
