Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a severe and disabling mental disorder. A person with schizophrenia might see or hear things that others don’t, have bizarre beliefs, and suspect that others are plotting against him because he has a special mission in the world. Schizophrenia can be treated with medicines.
