Proposed study will evaluate the impact of holistic rehabilitation programme on treatment of patients with schizophrenia. 50 patients will be included in the study with the following characteristics: age from 20 to 50 years, have been diagnosed with schizophrenia, have had more then one episode of illness in their lifetime and frequent recurrent (more then once a year) hospital psychiatric treatments or hospital treatment in duration of more then one year. Patients will be included in the study for the period of 12 months. During this time an individualized rehabilitation treatment plan will be set up by a team, composed of the patient, a relative, psychiatrist, social worker, occupational therapist and psychiatric nurse. Rehabilitation plan will include education about the illness and treatment for the patients and their relatives. The following variables will be looked into in details: the course of illness, compliance with treatment, needs of the patient, quality of rehabilitation programme during the study. Widely used and standardised questionnaries and clinical scales will be used to assess these variables. For the purpose of the study as well as future clinical and research work with patients two questionnaires will be composed to evaluate patients' independence and their satisfaction with rehabilitation programme used. The purpose of the study is to find out how a well-defined and individually tailored rehabilitation plan in six moths answers the patients' needs, improves the quality of their lives and the course of illness. The results of the study will be compared to the results from other similar studies and will be used to future develop the hospital and community rehabilitation programmes. We assume the study will confirm the favourable effect of individualized treatment, education and carefully planned care for the patient on the course of illness (clinical manifestations), lowering hospital admission rate, answering patients' needs and improving compliance with treatment. Patients will evaluate the quality of service with a special questionnaire.
