About Schizophrenia in Teens

Schizophrenia can be hard to spot in children and teens. Since it is normal to have teenage moodiness and hormonal changes, schizophrenia symptoms are sometimes overlooked and are seen as a normal part of growing up. When watching for signs of schizophrenia in teens, here are some things to look out for:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Seeing and/or hearing things that are not real
  • Paranoia, or thinking that people are talking about them or are “after them”
  • Strange ideas that are aloof (thinking people are stealing things from them, or that there are evil spirits around)
  • Difficulty maintaining physical appearance
  • Lack of emotional expression
  • Withdrawal from family, friends, and/or activities

This clinical study is researching a new potential treatment for teens between the ages of 13-17 years old, who suffer from schizophrenia.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a clinical trial or research study?

A clinical trial, also referred to as a research study, is a scientific study that evaluates the safety and efficacy of an investigational medication. A research study may show that the investigational medication is better than, as good as, or worse than the standard treatment or inactive placebo. Qualified doctors, nurses and other medical professionals will conduct the study.

It is only through the completion of research studies that investigational medication can be evaluated, and if proven safe and effective, approved for general use by appropriate regulatory or health authorities, such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Prescription medications in use today were first proven safe and effective in research studies.

Participants who are eligible and take part in the study may receive compensation for time and travel. Please discuss this with the research site staff when they contact you.

A participant can stop participating in the study at any time. If you do decide to stop early, you will simply have to notify the study team at the research center. The participant may be asked to visit one last time to check up on their health once the investigational medication has been stopped.

We match you to a study clinic within a close travel distance from your home. If we are not running the study in your area currently, with your permission, we will keep you in our database and reach out once a study clinic in your area becomes available. If, at any time, you decide you no longer want to participate in the study, you can opt out and we will delete your information.

When you sign up for a research study, your personal information is protected as required by law. The research team stores personal and private information with codes (instead of names or other identifying information), in order to not identify the participant or volunteer. The informed consent form that will be provided to you by the research team will have more information about privacy protection.
