  • 1. By Dr. Lindsay Rosenwald
  • 2. An accomplished asset manager and biotechnology investor with many years of experience, Dr. Lindsay Rosenwald currently serves as a co-founder of Opus Point Partners. Over the years, Dr. Lindsay Rosenwald has played an integral role in the development of treatments for several diseases, including schizophrenia. A complex psychological disorder with many different symptoms, schizophrenia often responds to anti-psychotic medications such as fluphenazine, haloperidol, chlorpromazine, and perhpenazine.
  • 3. In addition to pharmaceutical treatments, schizophrenia usually responds to some form of psychosocial treatment, which helps patients to cope with the everyday symptoms of the disorder. In particular, services such as family education and integrated treatment for co-occurring substance abuse helps individuals and families to understand the disorder and make lifestyle changes to accommodate it. Many patients experience success with cognitive behavioral therapy, which primarily focuses on managing symptoms and reducing the risk of relapse. In recent years, self-help groups have emerged as a way for people with schizophrenia to find support in their struggle and work together to overcome the disease.
