Have you come off, or tried to come off, psychiatric medications in the past five years?
The goal of this project is to understand the process of coming off psychiatric medications.
What helps or prevents people from stopping their psychiatric medications?
Sometimes people who take psychiatric medications choose to stop taking

find the information or support they need. Providers who want to help
often lack evidence to guide people. Your responses

medications. We will share the results in public reports and
presentations, as well as academic journals.

Adults ages 18+ in the United States who meet the following criteria:
with a psychiatric diagnosis, such as schizophrenia, schizoaffective
disorder, schizophreniform disorder, psychosis NOS, bipolar disorder I,
bipolar disorder II, bipolar disorder NOS, major
- In the last five years, took prescribed psychiatric medications for at least nine months before trying to come off them.
- Had a goal to completely stop taking one or two medications in the past five years.
We are particularly interested in hearing from people of color and people who have experienced poverty.
