We are trying to understand the genetic causes of schizophrenia-like illnesses that onset before the age of 14. We interview the family members and collect saliva for DNA from the affected child/adult and parents if possible. We also talk to the treating psychiatrist and take copies of medical records.
We are looking for:
- Diagnosis of a psychotic illness before the age of 14
- Diagnosis can be documented by the psychiatrist
- Psychiatrist and family willing to work with us in the study
- No known cause of the illness.
