Living with a mental illness doesn’t have to miserable. It is a great idea to create a self-care plan that keeps your mental health at the forefront of your life. Here are some ideas:
Schizophrenia is a serious mental health disorder that affects thinking, feeling, and behavior. A person diagnosed with Schizophrenia may appear as if they are in an alternate reality. This causes a lot of discomfort and distress to the individual, their families, and friends. There is no known cause for Schizophrenia, but research does point to brain chemical imbalances as a possible cause. These chemicals include neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin, and glutamate.
Schizophrenia has three sets of symptoms called psychotic or positive symptoms, negative symptoms, and cognitive symptoms. Each person will experience Schizophrenia in a different way, making it very difficult to detect and diagnose. The onset of symptoms is usually around late teens to early thirties with men showing symptoms much earlier than women. The following symptom details are provided by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).
