Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a chronic and severe mental disorder that affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves. People with schizophrenia may seem as though they have lost touch with reality. They may experience symptoms such as hearing voices that are not heard by others or believing that other people are reading their minds, controlling their thoughts, or plotting to harm them. Although schizophrenia is not as common as other mental disorders, the symptoms can cause serious interference in daily life. Learn more about schizophrenia.
