The following resources may be of help:
- Schizophrenia and Related Disorders Alliance of America (SARDAA), promotes hope and recovery for individuals living with the condition through education and in-person support groups and toll-free teleconference call support groups for individuals living with the condition and/or their family members. Through the SARDAA Support Group Locator you can search for in-person support groups.
- Schizophrenia.com also provides in-depth information, support groups and related resources, and education-related information related to Schizophrenia and related disorders.
- You may wish to read the book, Surviving Schizophrenia, by E. Fuller Torrey, which has become the standard reference book on the disorder. In clear language, the book describes the nature, causes, symptoms, treatment, and course of schizophrenia. It also explores living with the disease from both the patient and the family's point of view. The book can be purchased through online booksellers.
- Additionally, Mental Health America also maintains a Support Group Locator to direct you to a variety of organizations that offer support groups for consumers, their family members and friends. Some support groups are peer-led, while others may be led by a mental health professional.
