  2. To evaluate the reasons for initiation and/or discontinuation of new antipsychotic medications, including patient satisfaction with treatment [ Time Frame: 1, 3, 6, 9, 12 month ]
  3. To explore relevant factors for patient adherence to treatment [ Time Frame: 1, 3, 6, 9, 12 month ]
  4. To document clinical effectiveness and functionality of patients on RLAI and oral antipsychotics in daily clinical practice (as measured by the Global Assessment of Functioning [GAF] scale [ Time Frame: 1, 3, 6, 9, 12 month ]
  5. Long-term safety data of RLAI (25, 37.5 or 50 mg every 2 weeks) and oral antipsychotics will be collected [ Time Frame: 1, 3, 6, 9, 12 month ]
