Abstract An audit of hospital records of 542 patients diagnosed as having schizophrenia discharged in the years 1986–88 from the Princess Alexandra Hospital, Brisbane, showed that 46% of patients left hospital to live with other family members, usually parents or spouses. Analysis of destination suggested that the extent of patient-family connectedness increases when the patient is younger, has had fewer admissions, or has had the illness for a shorter period of time.
