The Schizophrenia Diagnosis Information Page is intended to provide educational information and healthcare cost savings resources for those living with this diagnosis or for those who have loved ones living with this diagnosis.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, Schizophrenia, which is diagnosed in about 1% of Americans, is a chronic, severe, and disabling brain disorder that has affected people throughout history. People with the disorder may hear voices other people don't hear. They may believe other people are reading their minds, controlling their thoughts, or plotting to harm them. They may not make sense when they talk. Or, sometimes people with schizophrenia seem perfectly fine until they talk about what they are really thinking. Many people with schizophrenia have difficulty holding a job or caring for themselves and although treatment helps relieve many symptoms, most people who have the disorder cope with symptoms throughout their lives. However, many people with schizophrenia can lead rewarding and meaningful lives in their communities. Researchers are developing more effective medications and using new research tools to understand the causes of schizophrenia. In the years to come, this work may help prevent and better treat the illness.
