Reports that Schizophrenia and Related Disorders Alliance of America (SRDAA) has spearheaded a new initiative to reclassify schizophrenia as a neurologic, rather than a psychiatric, disease. The action is designed to reduce stigma and ultimately obtain more research funding from the CDC. The article states that TAC and NAMI are on board with the initiative while the American Psychiatric Association is reluctant to support its reclassification as a neurologic disorder.
