This is a group of severe brain disorders in which people interpret reality abnormally. Schizophrenia may result in a combination of delusions, hallucinations and disordered behaviour and thinking. This is a chronic condition which requires lifelong treatment.
The symptoms of this condition can also be attributed to other mental illnesses and no one single symptom can pinpoint a diagnosis of schizophrenia. Schizophrenia symptoms in men begin in the 20s, whereas in women, the symptoms typically begin in the late 20s or early 30s.
