Informational Guides for Veterans and Families about Schizophrenia

Veterans Health Library

The VISN 5 MIRECC has assisted the Veterans Health Library in revising a series of informational materials focused on providing recovery-oriented information to Veterans living with schizophrenia and their families. Topics include understanding schizophrenia, supporting a loved one who is living with schizophrenia, understanding treatment options, and how to address stigma when pursing mental health recovery. Go to Guides for Veterans and Families about Schizophrenia to access this important resource.

The Veterans Health Library has a series of informational pages about helping Veterans with schizophrenia and their families.
