This will be anonymous and only take a few minutes. We are testing a hypothesis of five pathways to these diagnoses. If none of the descriptions fits your situation, please describe this, or the differences from the examples given.
If we can better define the different illnesses and pathways that result in a diagnosis of schizophrenia, we may be better able to find the underlying causes. We would appreciate your help in answering this simple questionnaire below.
