Schizophrenia, Politically Incorrect

This article explains it.

Mental health experts called on Monday for the term schizophrenia to be dropped, saying it has no scientific validity, is imprecise and stigmatizing.

He suggested replacing the term schizophrenia with the label dopamine dysregulation disorder.

Hello! It's a word. Only a word. Most people in the world have a level of understanding of the word. Political correctness has gone clear off the charts. Ol' BC can't imagine the stigmas as that big a problem. Any chance these nuts have any textbooks being used?

Just a thought.

I don't really see what is so terrible about changing the label, either, and I certainly don't see how it is in any way political. My experience is that the label is stigmatizing and misunderstood. Many people think it means multiple personality disorder, which it does not.
