Comprehensive care that prioritizes reducing the human impact of relapse may change the course and quality of a patient’s life.

Treatment as usual is simply not good enough1

Traditionally, schizophrenia treatment has focused on symptom control and behavioral management. However, there is an emerging interest in treatment models that focus on functional recovery. Unlike clinical remission, which is well defined and easily measurable, functional recovery is a complex and multidimensional concept that includes symptom remission, improved vocational functioning, independent living, and improved family and peer relationships. Standardized measures of functional recovery have yet to be developed, but a trend is developing among clinicians to consider functional recovery in their regular practice.2

Optimal illness management can positively influence the whole patient journey, as the cycle of relapse can be broken.3
