Schizophrenia

Written by 

 

About 1% of the world population suffers from this severe mental illness. Schizophrenia can appear in different forms, each one with its own symptoms. The most common are: auditory hallucinations, delusions of persecution or influence, disorganized behavior, loss of interest and motivation, severe disturbances in most fields of life.

 

Schizophrenia usually starts in adolescence or early adulthood. This is a chronic illness, which requires constant psychiatric follow up and medication to achieve a long remission. Remission allows social and professional rehabilitation.
