First Episode: Psychosis Results from a 2011 NAMI Survey
“In response to strong demand from NAMI’s community of individuals and families affected by mental illness, NAMI initiated this survey and as part of a project that includes new resource materials on its website: www.nami.org/psychosis. The survey follows another NAMI survey, Schizophrenia: Public Attitudes, Personal Needs (2008) which found that an average nine year gap occurs between symptoms and the beginning of treatment.”
