Cognitive Therapy for Older People with Psychosis
Psychosis is the most expensive mental disorder to treat, and the cost of care for older people with psychosis (> 65 years old) is even higher than for service users age 30–64 (Jeste et al., 1999). By the year 2050, the population over age 65 will double and the population over age 85 will increase fivefold (Jeste et al., 1999). This will lead to a dramatic increase in older people with psychosis in need of effective services.
