About

Family support is a positive predictor for psychiatric patients. For example, since the 1980s, it has been shown that family psychoeducation improves patient adherence to care and statistically decreases patient relapse and hospitalization rates by half, resulting in lower care costs. Yet, the stress of hospitalizing a patient, seeing the feelings of shame or guilt of caregiver and the impact on their quality of life are rarely taken into account by caregivers during the first weeks hospitalization in a patient's psychiatry. Barrelet emphasizes the importance of organizing the meeting in the first hours of hospitalization with the family in order to strengthen the alliance, to improve communication.
