Inquiry into the ‘Schizophrenia’ Label 

 

An independent Inquiry into the ‘Schizophrenia’ Label has been launched on 16thApril 2012 by a group of organisations and individuals concerned about the meaning and usefulness of ‘schizophrenia’ and similar labels such as ‘psychosis’. The Inquiry aims to investigate the impact this label has on people’s lives and to collect evidence from people, including mental health service users and carers, those (including professionals) who use these labels to describe mental health problems in other people, and those who have concerns about the use of such labels.

 

Please visit the website www.schizophreniainquiry.org for more information and to submit evidence to the Inquiry. You can submit evidence via the website by completing a questionnaire or writing to us using our testimony form at http://www.schizophreniainquiry.org/get-involved

 

The evidence collected will be examined by an independent panel made up of service users, academicians and a lawyer. The panel will produce a report based on this evidence which will be forwarded to a range of organisations including NICE, the Royal College of Psychiatrists, other professional and statutory bodies, private and third sector organisations, and the Department of Health.

 

This Inquiry has no financial ties to any organisation and is supported by around one hundred individuals and over 20 national and international organisations. You can also use the website to register your support and to spread the word about the Inquiry.

We look forward to your support.
