Yeh but you and I both know that in all likelihood these persons don't have the degree of psychosis than others have.

And they probably have access to therapy and other services.

The biomedical psychiatric / pharmacological paradigm is to many people an unquestionable religion - it doesn't matter what evidence is presented as to the contrary.

I think it could be argued to show that some people well enough to be off meds do better than those ill enough to need meds . This suggests that meds don't bridge the gap between the 2 groups but nonetheless may have some positive effects.

MIA ,per usual, spin it to be more than it actually is.
