Abstract

Background. A conceptual framework is described for a broad cost-benefit evaluation of improved financial access to treatment of untreated affective disorders. Method. The analysis provides an estimate of the value of resources needed to provide improved access to treatment, andit compares these resources to the value of resources the improved access to treatment might save. Results. The cost-benefit analyses basedon recent cost of mental illness studies provide some evidence that appropriately treating people with untreated affective disorders is cost-beneficial. Conclusion. Patients, providers and buyers of health care should be further encouraged to pay more attention and to commit more financial resources to the treatment of affective disorders.
