What are the benefits of deinstitutionalization

Born Fool:

for society, deinstitutionalization lowers the cost of long term care for the mentally ill. For an indevidaul it means a chance to function outside a "structured setting". For both the individual and the state it's really a mixed bag. Deinstitutionalized individuals tent to need recurring treatment of one kind or another. This cost is pushed off the state's plate and onto the county level. There are some people who simply can't function outside an institution, but they seem so "normal" within the setting that they keep getting looked at for mainstreaming.
