Schizophrenia Commission (UK)

Itís 100 years since the Swiss Psychiatrist, Bleuler coined the term schizophrenia. Affecting 1% of the population, it ranks among the top 10 causes of global disability, yet remains misunderstood and surrounded by stigma. Prognosis depends on the individual and their environment, but also available treatment. This presents an opportunity to intervene. In November 2011 Rethink Mental Illness launched our independent commission, chaired by Professor Sir Robin Murray. With expertise spanning health and social care, research, and lived experience of mental illness, we reviewed the capacity to support people with schizophrenia and psychosis in England. Recommendations arising from our inquiry call for a radical overhaul of the current system of care.
