Signs of Schizophrenia


Signs of Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a type of thought disorder that can severely impact an individual’s thoughts, feelings and even the ability to function on a daily basis.

Like most mental health disorders, schizophrenia can be treated, and individuals can learn how to properly manage the symptoms. According to the American Psychological Association, about one in a hundred Americans suffer from schizophrenia, and there is a genetic link that does contribute to the onset of symptoms. A variety of genes and environmental factors come into play when diagnosing people with this mental health disorder. It’s important to understand the symptoms before the disease completely takes over. Our mental health facility in Boca Raton discusses the common symptoms of schizophrenia and how to treat this thought disorder.
