Schizophrenia - New Hope for Effective Treatment through Drug Development

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.

Marquette Presents Series is a research series on issues of community health from the College of Health Sciences.
