Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia (originated from the Greek word schizein meaning "to split" and phrēn, "mind") is a psychiatric diagnosis that describes a mental disorder characterized by abnormalities in the perception or expression of reality. It most commonly manifests as auditory hallucinations, paranoid or bizarre delusions, or disorganized speech and thinking with significant social or occupational dysfunction. Schizophrenia is a severe, lifelong, disabling brain disorder. People who have it may hear voices, see things that aren't there or believe that others are reading or controlling their minds. Onset of symptoms typically occurs in young adulthood, with approximately 0.4–0.6% of the population affected. In men, symptoms usually start in the late teens and early 20s. While in women, they start in the mid-20s to early 30s. Other symptoms include

  • Unusual thoughts or perceptions
  • Disorders of movement
  • Difficulty speaking and expressing emotion
