Abstract

Over 26 years some 73 patients with schizophrenia were observed. Three types were considered, true schizophrenia, schizophrenia simplex, and schizoaffective disorders. Of those traced and alive in 1971, some 18% of the group had recovered, 46% had made a social recovery, 25% were unemployed in the community, and 11% were long-stay hospital patients.
