What is Schizophrenia?
Schizophrenia is a challenging brain disorder that makes it difficult to distinguish between what is real and unreal, think clearly, manage emotions, relate to others, and function. It may result in some combination of hallucinations, delusions, and extremely disordered thinking and behavior. Contrary to popular belief, schizophrenia isn’t a split personality or multiple personality – it actually refers to a disruption of the usual balance of emotions and thinking. Schizophrenia can be successfully managed with the right help and treatment.
