Informational Guides for Veterans and Families about Schizophrenia

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.
