What is schizophrenia called now?


Schizophrenia is still called schizophrenia. However, some experts and advocacy groups have suggested using alternative terms such as “psychosis spectrum disorder” or “brain disorder with psychosis” to reduce the stigma associated with the term “schizophrenia” and to emphasize the complex nature of the disorder. These alternative terms aim to shift the focus from the label to the symptoms and experiences of the person. However, it is important to note that these terms are not yet widely accepted or used in clinical practice.
