In recognition of a service gap between hospital inpatient and community-based care, a range of mental health services have been developed to provide treatment and support for people with mental illness outside the inpatient setting. Acute and subacute residential services provide care for individuals experiencing episodes of acute mental illness and provide transitional services to assist people in their reintegration into the community. This article provides a systematic review of studies evaluating the effectiveness of these alternative services.
