WHAT IS SCHIZOPHRENIA?
The most disabling and serious of all mental disorders, schizophrenia is what we associate with madness or insanity. There is a popular misconception that schizophrenia is a "split personality." Actually schizophrenia means "split mind" because there is such chaos and fragmentation of mental processes.
What happens in schizophrenia? What does it look like? What are the distortions in emotion, thinking, and perception that result in such eery and bizarre communication and behavior? Who becomes schizophrenic? What types of treatment are available? The typical course of schizophrenia is presented, along with a description of the classic symptoms and categories.
Stereotypes regarding schizophrenia are discussed, as well as fear of schizophrenic individuals. Finally, there is a plea for compassion and societal responsibility in schizophrenia. This is a universal illness that involves tremendous suffering.
