The Fact Sheets are produced as part of team partnership. An expert or experts in the field being discussed drafts text to cover elements of the disorder: what's it like, what problems occur because of it, what can be done to help the person, and how likely is it that the person's life might improve. It goes through a review process with other therapists plus a professional editor during which time we check for facts, make sure that pertinent information is there, and, sometimes, rewrite it so that it is accessible to the broadest possible audience.
