Renaming Schizophrenia in Taiwan and in East Asian Countries

Wen-Chen Ouyang, Yen Kuang Yang

Psychiatric disorders carry a stigma which usually leads to discrimination and causes prob-lems in many aspects of life. People with mental illness thus have difficulties getting a job, finding housing and making (or keeping) friends or part-ners. The stigma adds misery to the life of indi-viduals with a mental disorder. It affects their families, professionals, and others who provide them with care.
