Against the backdrop of an increase in disability pensions due to mental health disorders, the aim of this review was a systematic analysis of the sustainability of inpatient psychiatric/ psychosomatic rehabilitation covering an observation period of at least 12 months after discharge from rehabilitation.
Overall, included studies (1 meta-analysis, 4 RCTs, 2 pre-post studies with, and 14 without a control group) showed similar trends: the improvement between admission and discharge deteriorated to varying degrees during the catamnestic period. Nevertheless, results remained better than at admission, though. In studies on specific aftercare we observed a trend towards an improved stabilization of treatment effects.
