This guide provides answers to the wide-ranging questions that carers may have about family members or friends suffering from schizophrenia. These include how to recognise symptoms of schizophrenia, the various options for treatment and a glossary of commonly-used phrases and words. The authors also explain how friends and families can become involved in caring for a person with schizophrenia and also who can provide help and support for the carers. This new edition has been completely revised and updated to take in new mental health legislation and new developments in the treatment of schizophrenia.
