Objectives: The contemporary approach to psychiatric diseases is to refer the patient to community-based care instead of hospital-based care. In addition to medication, it has been found that day-hospital practices have positive results in schizophrenic patients. In this study, our purpose is to report the results of a psychosocial rehabilitation program at Bakirkoy Day Hospital for schizophrenic patients receiving medication, and to compare them with the results for schizophrenic patients receiving medication who were not in this program.
