Can research change the way people live with schizophrenia?

Schizophrenia is a condition that negatively affects people’s mental health in different ways.

For example, it can affect a person’s mood or behavior. It can also affect the way a person thinks, which includes their memory and how they process things. Doctors call this “cognitive impairment.”

Examples of cognitive impairment include:

  • Forgetting where you put something
  • Not being able to focus while reading a book or watching a movie
  • Being unable to calculate the correct change when you pay for something in cash
  • Not being able to plan ahead so you arrive on time.

To qualify, you must:

  • Be 18-50 years of age and diagnosed with schizophrenia
  • Have been taking the same medication for schizophrenia for at least three months
  • Experience trouble with cognitive tasks, such as remembering things or staying focused
  • Be able to attend study visits with someone they see and speak to regularly (a study partner)
  • Not have been hospitalized for symptoms related to schizophrenia within the last three months or have had suicidal behavior in the past year.

Participants will receive study-related medical care and investigational study medication at no cost and may be eligible for compensation for time and travel.
