Significant Gender Differences Found in Psychosis Outcome Joan Arehart-Treichel
Women with schizophrenia fare better than do men with the illness, various retrospective studies have found. Now a longitudinal investigation further supports these results.
The study was headed by Linda Grossman, Ph.D., a professor of psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Grossman reported the results at APA's 2006 annual meeting in Toronto in May. The results are also published in the June Psychiatric Services.
