Welcome to the Schizophrenia Library

After months of redesigning, tweaking and tinkering, the world's first, free online Schizophrenia Library is ready to be unveiled!

We've spent more than two years reading, collating and assessing peer-reviewed studies about schizophrenia published in journals around the world to create a resource that is suitable for clinicians as well as friends and family members of people with schizophrenia.

If you need to know anything about schizophrenia - causes, the efficacy of different treatments, how it affects families - this site will tell you. If any information is missing, get in contact with us via our Google+ page and let us know. We're always looking for ways to improve the site.
