May 24th was World Schizophrenia Day. The day provides an opportunity each year to shine a light on psychosis and schizophrenia; to start conversations, dispel myths, learn about early signs, symptoms, recovery, available support options and advocate for change.

In recognition, this year the IEPA endorsed Early Intervention in Psychiatry Journal has unlocked access to a range of papers. All of these papers will be free to read until the end of August.

Keep a look out for IEPA’s social media posts about the day with the hashtag #WorldSchizophreniaDay, as each day we spotlight a new paper.


Free Access for 3 months
