Abstract

In Japan, admission to a psychiatric facility for people with schizophrenia is usually for life. We developed a rehabilitation program aimed at discharging these patients into the Tokyo community. This paper describes the results for the 224 patients. Using an inpatient ward at the Tokyo Musashino Hospital, patients were enrolled in the program and subsequently discharged into the community with an assigned worker. The results indicate for the majority (79%) re-integration into the community was successful. The success of this program in a metropolitan city like Tokyo argues for the efficacy of such programs.
