PLEASE can someone read this and tell me if it is enough for AO1 for the first half of this essay question: 'Outlineand Evaluate one biological and one psychological therapy for Schizophrenia'

"The most commonly used biological therapy in treating Schizophrenia (Sz) is drug therapy. There are two main categories of drugs - Neuroleptic and Atypical - and some, can be more effective in reducing positive symptoms such as hallucinations, delusions, compared to the negative i.e. feelings of flatness and a lack of motivation. Neuroleptic drugs such as Thorazone and Prolixin can help to reduce the symptoms of Sz by blocking the D2 receptors which in turn reduces the level of activity of dopamine in the brain. Atypical drugs such as Clozaril, similarly blocks the activity of the neurotransmitter dopamine, however also effects the activity of serotonin."

Thank you.
