Evidence shows that crisis houses offer a cost-effective alternative to acute admissions, are preferred by people who use services and carers, and produce comparable outcomes. A comparison of standard acute inpatient mental health care and alternatives found that alternatives are significantly cheaper - on average £3,832 per admission compared to £9,850 - and more cost-effective - £2,939 cheaper per unit of HoNOS improvement score (Health of the National Outcome Scales), with much shorter average stays.
