Crazy: A modern look at schizophrenia

Schizophrenia (© David Ensor)

Schizophrenia hits one in every 100 people around the world – men and women, old and young, rich and poor – yet scientists are still not entirely sure why and how schizophrenia occurs. Is there a genetic factor? Is there an environmental influence? What is the current treatment? And what is the future for schizophrenics? 

Anne Blair Gould investigates these and other questions, speaking with many of the world’s leading experts in the field of schizophrenia as well as schizophrenics themselves.
