Schizophrenia affects over 220,000 people in England and an estimated 1 in 6 people will experience some symptoms of psychosis at some stage in their lives.
The Schizophrenia Commission, a panel of 14 leading health and social care figures, have conducted an independent inquiry into the treatment and care of people with Schizophrenia. The Commission heard evidence from 80 experts and people affected by the condition, and received evidence from 2,500 more online. They also received new data from the London School of Economics on the costs associated with Schizophrenia in the UK.
