Episode 8: Finding and losing schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a contentious diagnosis and source of often heated debate across the various professions and stakeholders associated with mental health. Some argue that it has outlasted its usefulness as a single diagnosis and should instead be viewed as the extreme end of a ‘psychosis spectrum disorder’.

To unpick the issues, we’re delighted to be joined by award-winning author Nathan Filer, who is in conversation with Professor James Walters, deputy director at NCMH to discuss his latest book – The Heartland: Finding and Losing Schizophrenia.

This episode was recorded live at Bigmoose Coffee Co. in Cardiff. They’re a fantastic bunch and do great work in the community, so if you’re in town make sure you pop in for a coffee and try some of their amazing cakes.
