  • CBC Announcement

    In an article written by Benedict Carey, John Kane, Chairman of the psychiatry department at Hofstra North Shore - LIJ School of Medicine studies the past treatments for Schizophrenia and how new studies find that this way of medication prescribing is not the best answer. "Nearly three quarters of people prescribed medications for the disorder stop taking them within a year and a half, studies find" (Carey, 2015).

    Dr. Lata McGinn's article in Psychosis, 2015 "Identical symptomatology but different diagnosis: Treatment implications of an OCD versus schizophrenia diagnosis" agrees stating, "...Individuals who receive the label of schizophrenia are unlikely to be offered psychosocial treatments despite the evidence for the efficacy of this approach" (Hunter et al, 2015).
