User Profile
This is a call for research participants for a study:
The Experience of Taking Anti-Psychotic Medication for Schizophrenia - by Syrita Khalef of Middlesex University and the New School of Psychotherapy & Counselling

I am looking for:
-An ethnically diverse group of people who are aged 18 - 40 years of age and
- Have a diagnosis of Schizophrenia
- Have been taking anti-psychotic medication for at least six months
- Are fluent in English language

Participation involves
- A brief videocall (via skype or similar program) to check your eligibility
- On a separate day, a second videocall for an interview on your experience of having schizophrenia, taking anti-psychotic medication and what effect you feel that has on your daily life (approx. 1 hour)
Anti-psychotic medication is one of the most common ways to treat schizophrenia. A lot of research has focussed on the clinical side of anti-psychotic medication but there is less research into what it is like for the people who take this medication. This study hopes to gain better understanding about what individuals with schizophrenia feel the advantages or disadvantages are of taking anti-psychotic medication.
Please contact Syrita Khalef here: [email protected] if you are interested in participating or if you have any queries, which will remain confidential.
