It says this board is for those with schizophrenia or a related disorder. What counts as a related disorder? Is it the full schizophrenia spectrum including schizophrenia spectrum personality disorders or just schizophrenia/schizoaffective/schizophreniform ?

Hi,

We are not rigid in our definition of “schizophrenia spectrum” disorders - if you want to participate and you think that you might fit under the broader definition of schizophrenia spectrum personality disorders - then by all means, please participate. Your contributions are very much appreciated - so I hope you’ll participate.

I am diagnosed with paranoid PD which is one of the schizophrenia spectrum PDs. There is debate about it’s connection to schizophrenia re increased prevalence of it in family members of those diagnosed with schizophrenia.
