The University of New England School of Health is looking for health professionals to participate in a research study. The health professional must be a mother of an adult child who has been diagnosed with schizophrenia.

The purpose of the research study is to look at these mothers’ stories to see how they have negotiated care for adult children with schizophrenia.

Participation will involve:

  • Answering questions on the phone to see if you meet the inclusion criteria
  • Signing a consent form with your agreement to participate (with the proviso that you can withdraw at any time for any reason)
  • Participating in an interview in which the audio will be taped.

The research is conducted by PhD student Debra Klages from the School of Health at the University of New England.

  1. I am an RN. I have 2 boys that have schizophrenia now age 14 and 21 with symptoms beginning at age 5 but even in infancy there were hints of something not quite right leading to a long journey to receive correct diagnoses.
