Milwaukee Marquette Presents: Schizophrenia

Fri, 31 May, 2013 7:00 AM - 10:00 AM

Marquette Presents: Schizophrenia--New Hope for Effective Treatment through Drug Development

Hosted by the Marquette University College of Health Sciences
Friday, May 31

Although more than 3 million Americans suffer from schizophrenia, it is still a disease shrouded in mystery and misinformation. Medications used to treat schizophrenia haven't worked particularly well and haven't changed significantly since their original development in the 1950s.

Add to this the link between mental health issues and poverty - more than 25% of the single adult homeless population suffers from a severe, persistent mental illness - and it's plain to see that something needs to be done to change the course of mental health treatment.

These topics and more will be addressed by a panel of experts at the Marquette University College of Health Sciences’ next breakfast forum. Please join us for a discussion of new developments that could result in a profound impact on schizophrenia and other debilitating mental illnesses.
