Frequent Patient Contact May Reduce Risk of Relapse in Schizophrenia Patients

Frequent patient contact appears to account for an impressively low relapse rate in both arms of a study comparing long-acting injectable (LAI) antipsychotic risperidone and second-generation oral antipsychotics, according to a report in Psychiatric Services in Advance.

I’m lucky if I get 30mins contact a fortnight. Resources are spread thin.

And this time is spent doing my depot…

I get about 5 mins on average with the depot unless they are also doing blood pressure,weight etc.

i’m the complete opposite, i have had the help of a good friend for many years and now i am trying to get less attention, i want a bit of space, my friend has been a great source of help through the years and its down to her that i am well enough to try and get a job.

Don’t know about elsewhere but here in the UK I think you get put on autopilot if you are chronically as opposed to acutely ill.
