Two New Schizophrenia Surveys - Participate and Contribute

We've recently been contacted by two different psychology students who are doing independent research related to schizophrenia. If you have time and would like to contribute - following is information on the studies and links to their on-line surveys. Results will be posted on the web site at a later date.

Survey #1 - Thoughts and Schizophrenia

Who this survey is for: People who have been diagnosed with Schizophrenia:

The purpose of this study is to gain an understanding of thoughts and beliefs and how those thoughts and beliefs manifest themselves. You must be at least 18 years of age to participate in this survey.
Some of the questions are very personal, but this survey is completely anonymous and your identifying information will neither be collected nor reported.

How about giving some more info about your research? I feel uncomfortable on supplying you with text comments about my innermost personal life without any information on how and where this will be used, or not. Or is it as simple as presenting yourself as a grad student? That's really not enough. Or else you might want to answer those questions to whom (??) yourself? I think probably not you would..

I have been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. I am 45 years old. I am trying to obtain positive information in advances medical professionals are making in the treatment of schizoaffective disorder and schizophrenia.

Also, I am trying to find out if other people with serious mental illness are ever able to stop smoking. I gave up smoking in the 1990's, but began smoking again when my illness took a dramatic turn for the worse. I hate myself when I smoke. Is there a website or support group for people with mental illness who want to stop smoking, but are having trouble? I would appreciate anyone's help.
