Rename Scizophrenia Please!

Posted by DanielJ on May 19, 2005, at 11:40:56

Now Manic Depression is called bipolar, so can we please(Medical Community) think of a name that is not so stigmatized. The news media seems to delight in using "Schizophrenia" for a catchall word for Criminally insane. Well they are all wrong. There are thousands of people with schizophrenia (including my son) who are leading fruitful productive and near normal lives.
Please, can we think of another name for it. 1% of the population of the world will have it at some time in their lives. That's a lot of folks being ostracized. Proper treament minimizes the effects of this illness, now the medical community needs to work on getting rid of the bad name
