Abstract

Research shows the rate of relapse among people with schizophrenia can be reduced by interventions focusing on how a family functions. This article is a systematic review of the studies, held by the Cochrane Library. The review concludes that relapse, hospital admission and compliance with medication were improved where family-based interventions were used.
