short answer to discussion

Help me study for my Psychology class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.

The number of people being treated for mental illness keeps increasing but there are less people in hospitals or institutions. Deinstitutionalization was an attempt to return people to society so that they could lead productive lives. Some people believe that deinstitutionalization has made the lives of the mentally ill worse since they often live in substandard living conditions and are the victims of crime. Post a discussion as to what you feel about deinstitutionalization.
