Welcome to the Schizophrenia Resource Centre
The resource centre aims to provide clinicians with free access to the latest literature on schizophrenia.
The site is regularly updated with the latest peer-reviewed articles, editorials, expert interviews, congress news and lectures. We hope to cover all topics that are of relevance to mental health practitioners who treat and manage patients with schizophrenia. Sign up for the e-alert to stay informed about new content updates.
Content is selected by the editor, Prof. Robin Emsley, and the editorial board members Dr. Peter Haddad and Prof. José M. Olivares.

“This month we focus on the need for more precise diagnostic tools in the early stage of illness – i.e. those at risk of transition to psychosis. With an emphasis on early recognition and effective intervention there is an urgent need to develop such tools in order to prevent accruing morbidity and disease progression. A lot of work is being done to identify clinical, cognitive and biological markers.”
