Schizophrenia & Psychosis Action Alliance is leading a coalition to reclassify schizophrenia as a neurological brain disease. Reclassification will give patients the proper education, protection, and comprehensive care they deserve and create more welcoming communities. To learn more about reclassification, click here.

I will encourage my peers, family members, and colleagues to speak up when they see any discriminatory language or practices in the news or in public.
I will advocate that all brain disorders receive equal and comprehensive healthcare.
I will treat all people living with brain disorders with respect and compassion.
I want to learn more and stay involved through receiving newsletters and updates.
