Additionally, the UM Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Services is interviewing first-degree relatives of patients with schizophrenia/schizo-affective disorder and peer specialists and asking their input about a computer-based test that measures abilities and skills that are important for everyday functioning called the VRFCAT (Virtual Reality Functional Capacity Assessment Tool). The one-time visit will take between 1.5-2hrs and is being done through Zoom. Participants will be compensated for their time.
