The Schizophrenia Section of the World Psychiatric Association—through its network of international members - engages in clinical, scholarly, scientific, and public health activities designed to improve well-being for people suffering from schizophrenia and other primary psychotic disorders.


More specifically, the Schizophrenia Section disseminates important advances about schizophrenia through academic and technical publications, as well as through symposia and courses offered at WPA regional meetings and congresses; advances scientific knowledge about schizophrenia through collaborative research and evaluation; determines standards for competency in schizophrenia that is adequate for the practice of psychiatry and, focusses on understanding the biological underpinnings and contributions of neuroscience that validate schizophrenia theory and technique.
