PsychU Spotlight

Schizophrenia is a chronic brain disorder that may include symptoms such as delusions, hallucinations, trouble with thinking and concentration, and lack of motivation.1 Approximately 3.5 million people in the United States are diagnosed with schizophrenia, and treatment and other economic costs due to the disease range between $32.5 and $65 billion annually.2 While there is currently no cure, ongoing research is leading to new and safer treatments for schizophrenia that hold the promise of becoming effective therapies.1 Join us this month as we explore recent schizophrenia research, news, and expert perspectives.
