From Dorie - As the mother of a son with Paranoid Schizophrenia I have been struggling with the issue of prayer for quite some time. It is not that I have lost faith. I have been running on it for five years now. Granted there were times when it was reduced to the size of a mustard seed. But as I look back in hindsight, there was a moment that stands out from all the rest that left me totally and completely drained and frozen in fear like a deer in the headlights of an oncoming car when it came to the issue of prayer.

 

Cognitive Rehabilitation Shows Robust Benefits For Schizophrenics - Targeted therapy can help ease some of the most chronically disabling aspects of schizophrenia, new research shows.

 

A Beautiful Note - Tom Harrell, named jazz trumpeter of the year three times by Downbeat Magazine, is known for the gorgeous, intricate melodies he composes.  Seeing Harrell play, it's impossible to believe that he suffers from paranoid schizophrenia - a mental illness so profound that it  institutionalizes many of its victims.

Brain Growth Link to Schizophrenia - A gene mutation that alters the shape of the brain in some people with schizophrenia could help explain why the disease often strikes at adolescence.

 

Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia Key Found - A stress-activated molecule underlies many of the symptoms of some mental illnesses, a new study shows. We control our behaviors, thoughts, and emotions via an important part of the brain: the prefrontal cortex. People with injuries to this part of the brain become impulsive, distractible, and have poor judgment. Major damage to the prefrontal cortex can cause thought disorders and hallucinations.
