Schizophrenia is a mental disorder often characterized by abnormal social behavior and

People with the disorder may hear voices other people dont hear. They may believe other
people are reading their minds, controlling their thoughts, or plotting to harm them.
People with schizophrenia may not make sence when they talk. They may sit for hours
without moving or talking. Sometimes people with schizophrenia seem perfectly fine until
talk about what they are really thinking
Families and society are affected by schizophrenia too. Many people with schizophrenia have
difficulty holding a job or caring for themselves, so they rely on other for help.
Treatment helps relieve many symptoms of schizophrenia, but most people who have the
disorder cope with symptoms throughout their lives. However, many people with
schizophrenia can lead rewarding and meaningful lives in their communities. Researchers are
developing more effective medications and using new research tools to understand the causes
of schizophrenia. In the years to come, this work may help prevent and better treat the illness.
