Abstract

The authors used a battery of cognitive and social functioning measures to evaluate stable outpatients with schizophrenia (n = 74) and bipolar I disorder (n = 26) who were receiving care at community and rehabilitation programs. The groups did not differ significantly on 36 of 41 measures. For most variables, comparisons between groups yielded effect sizes of <0.5. These results suggest that individuals with bipolar I disorder receiving community and rehabilitation services have many social and cognitive deficits that are as severe as those in schizophrenia.
