      By Brandon Tantari
    • Schizophrenia: parenthetical definition
      Schizophrenia is a severe mental disorder that is usually characterized by delusions, incoherence, hallucinations, as well as physical agitation. (hearing voices or having a split personality)
      Unlike other mental disorders like bipolar syndrome Schizophrenia is classified as a thought disorder not a mood disorder.

      Jill was diagnosed with Schizophrenia from her doctor after reporting signs of severe agitation and depersonalization (feeling detached from ones body)
      Examples
    • Schizophrenia comes from the Greek words “schizo” which means split, and “phrenia” which means mind.
      Schizophrenia is estimated to inhibit 1% of the words population.
      Schizophrenia (extended)
    • Out of all the major mental disorders schizophrenia is the most chronic and disabling.
      Having a split personality does not necessarily mean someone has schizophrenia, split personality is merely a symptom of the disease.

      Many doctors resort to therapy when treating a patient with schizophrenia in order to help patients develop social and work skills to improve their lives and relationships.
      Schizophrenia treatment

      doctors usually provide anti-psychotics in two phases…
      Acute phase- in this phase doctors provide the highest doses in medication in order to treat psychotic symptoms.
      Maintenance phase- where dosage is reduced gradually to prevent further episodes.
      Medication
    • Electroconvulsive Therapy is for severe cases of Schizophrenia.
      during ETC a brief electric current is applied through the scalp to the brain which induces a seizure.
