Issue Areas/Comments
The use of statements like 'schizophrenia/ depression or any other mental condition is a brain/genetic disease' in promotional material for antipsychotic or other drugs is enforcing the mistrust that especially those labeled as schizophrenics already have in society. Unless there is concrete evidence those statements should be avoided, at least in my humble opinion.
