This article presents a consecutive case series of 70 patients treated with olanzapine, case management, and psychosocial rehabilitation in a community mental health setting. This group demonstrated highly significant improvement on all analyzed measures of symptoms and psychosocial function at 6-month follow-up. These findings suggest that results of efficacy studies of olanzapine will generalize to the community mental health setting. Furthermore, prescribing olanzapine in combination with case management and rehabilitation yields positive functional outcomes.
