Managing schizophrenia

This booklet is for you if:

This booklet aims to make adult patients and their families aware of the treatment and care they should expect to receive when they are experiencing psychosis or when they have been diagnosed with schizophrenia. Most parts of the booklet are for patients but we acknowledge that family members and carers will also read this.

We produce patient booklets which are based on our clinical guidelines. These patient booklets explain the recommendations in the clinical guideline; and help to make patients aware of the tests and treatments they should expect to receive from the NHS.

These patient booklets are a lay translation of the clinical guidelines. They are not intended to be general information leaflets.
