The review and analysis of the current status of knowledge about schizophrenia and its treatment begins with a brief review of some statistics on mental health, the National Institute of Mental Health's grants program in schizophrenia, an NIMH-sponsored international conference on Schizophrenia - the Implications of Research Findings for Treatment and Training, and the Center for Studies of Schizophrenia. A synthesis of recent and current research in schizophrenia covers the following topics: diagnosis, description, and psychological functions; genetics; biology; studies of populations at high risk; family interaction and processes; childhood schizophrenia and autism; and treatment. Problems of two types facing schizophrenia are noted - attitudinal barriers and issues of scientific fact. Six of the most pressing unresolved or controversial scientific questions are detailed. References for each topic discussed are listed. (KW)
