Schizophrenia is a well known emotional and mental disorder that causes hallucinations, paranoid and delusional behaviour. In contrary to many other diseases, schizophrenia is mostly affected and caused by external environment. People that are suffering from this disorder usually cannot differentiate their imaginative world from the real one. Schizophrenia is very often a result of stress and develops gradually.
Metrics details. Schizophrenia is a complex, heterogeneous disorder, with highly variable treatment outcomes, and relatively little is known about what is important to patients. The aim of the study was to understand treatment outcomes informal carers perceive to be important to people with schizophrenia. Interviews were transcribed verbatim and analysed by a thematic framework based approach.
More than two million in the United States have been diagnosed with schizophrenia, with the usual treatment that mainly involves strong doses of antipsychotic drugs. These drugs help to blunt hallucinations and delusions. Unfortunately, a lot of these drugs come with side effects such as weight gain or tremors. It is a psychological disorder that I have always found fascinating. It is a serious disorder that consumes a person's life and is nearly impossible to control.
