Improving Functional Outcomes in College and University Students with Schizophrenia in the Western World
Christianson, Laura
Journal of American College Health, v66 n1 p61-68 2018
Retrospective research from patients with schizophrenia suggests that remission becomes increasingly less likely the longer psychosis goes untreated. Yet symptoms of schizophrenia are insidious and disease evolution varies between patients, requiring an ongoing diagnostic process. One way of justifying early treatment is by focusing on functionality rather than symptomatology. Most patients are diagnosed with schizophrenia between the ages of 17 and 25--when many young adults are undergraduates or pursuing post-graduate education. The extent to which schools partner with mental health services has implications for the short-term success of students' recovery and their future employability. Translating study findings on schizophrenia to the college setting remains an important area of investigation.
