Schizophrenia is a mental condition that involves a wide range of problems when it comes to thinking, behavior, and/or emotions. While signs and symptoms vary from person to person, hallucinations, disorganized speech, and impaired functional ability are typically common.
It is important to seek treatment whenever a mental condition begins to negatively interfere with or impair daily activities. People with schizophrenia often become so disorganized with their thoughts and speech that it is impossible to function.
Schizophrenia typically requires lifelong treatment. Even though symptoms may seem dormant, treatment must continue. Common treatments include medications (antipsychotics), therapy (family therapy, individual therapy, social skills training, etc.), hospitalization, and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT).
