(2) Does relapse contribute to disease progression and treatment resistance? (3) When should the diagnosis of schizophrenia be made Schizophrenia is a complex, heterogeneous disorder, with highly variable treatment outcomes, and relatively little is known about what is important to patients.

Methods We searched the online electronic databases Web of Knowledge, the Cochrane Library, and the current National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines for suitable. In this article, we present an updated review of the various forms of psychosocial interventions that have been studied in methodologically sound clinical trials, with a special emphasis on studies published since the 1996 review by Penn and Mueser . Randomized controlled trials currently assess relevant outcomes in patients with schizophrenia. Thirty one articles from peer-reviewed journals were identified, and the most relevant articles were selected for this review. Results: The most common indication for using ECT for schizophrenia patients was to augment pharmacotherapy, while the most common accompanying symptoms were, in order, catatonia, aggression and suicide Asenapine has demonstrated efficacy in the acute and maintenance phases of schizophrenia treatment and in the treatment of acute mania in BPAD, but it is only currently licensed for the treatment of mania in the UK. 35 Asenapine has high affinity for multiple serotonin receptors, with antagonism at 5-HT2A, 5-HT2C and 5-HT7 and 5-HT1A agonism. Treatment of schizophrenia, however, is typically given over the long term, and, to our knowledge, it is unknown if the same level of D 2-receptor occupancy used for short-term treatment is needed over months to reduce the risk of relapse. Another potential issue is whether long-term treatment induces changes in the dopamine system
