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.

If you or someone close to you has schizophrenia, you will be able to find support and information from our online support group for schizophrenia.
