Schizophrenia

Introduction

Schizophrenia is a mental illness distorting a person’s perception of what they see and hear, and how they make sense of the world around them. There is no blood test or scan - a psychiatrist makes the diagnosis. Treatment is a combination of community and psychological support, and medication.
