During COVID, I’m sure some things have changed but I was curious as to whether anyone has participated in any of the studies through NIMH? Some are based around the country - some are in-house at NIMH in Maryland. I’ve called them a couple of times to get specifics on certain studies but unfortunately I couldn’t get my son to cooperate. They’ve had numerous studies over the years and often assist with transportation costs from the time one leaves home until their return. This link shows two of the latest studies: https://www.nimh.nih.gov/research/research-conducted-at-nimh/join-a-study/adults/adults-schizophrenia.shtml

'just thought I’d share in case someone might be able to use the info or maybe even participate. I also called them once to find out how the “1% of the population” was arrived at since many times, when I mention my son’s problem, someone knows someone who had it or has a family member who suffered from it. Too, too often. I was told basically that a lot of their info may come from ERs - and those who report cases of it. SO, if not all cases are reported, there is probably a greater number than 1% and in turn, should receive greater funding for research.
