Although psychiatric aftercare has received increased attention, little is known about patients' needs for community resources or about predischarge referral patterns. The authors interviewed hospital staff about needs and referrals for each of 747 patients about to be discharged. Nearly all patients had needs in the medical/therapeutic area and most received referrals. In three other nonmedical aftercare areas needs were identified for a much lower percentage of patients, and identified need was two to three times greater than referrals made. The authors discuss the implications of these findings for the provision of aftercare services.
