Recovery From Psychotic Disorders Is Real

Some people with psychotic disorders are recovering from their illness, living full lives with jobs and families, according to a report in The New York Times today. The article tells the story of a chief executive officer of a nonprofit company who lives with schizoaffective disorder and reports on an ongoing study sponsored by UCLA, USC, and the Department of Veterans Affairs that is following the lives of individuals who are living successfully with major mental disorders. For more information on recovery from schizophrenia, see Psychiatric News and Essentials of Schizophrenia, written by Jeffrey Lieberman, M.D., and published by American Psychiatric Publishing.
