Improving the lives of people with schizophrenia
The Best Practices in Schizophrenia Treatment (BeST) Center promotes recovery and works to improve the lives of people with schizophrenia.
Research indicates that individuals who have been treated for schizophrenia with a combination of antipsychotic medications and psychosocial therapies can and do improve their lives. However, many people with schizophrenia do not have full access to proven treatments, and until they do, the overall quality of schizophrenia care will not improve. The BeST Center provides expert training, consultation and technical assistance to community mental health agencies so that the agencies can provide best practices in schizophrenia treatment.
