Children are worst affected

http://vgnair.com
Schizophrenia, the illness no one is immune!
Anyone can get it! Create awareness. Tell your friends.

Are they around you?
They show symptoms such as
Social withdrawal ?
out-of-the-ordinary behavior?
and more......

Study shows
1 in 100 belong to this group.
Anyone can get it.
That is Schizophrenia!

Stress & medications during pregnency can take the child to Schizophrenia
Parents fighting and separation can make a child turn to Schizophrenia
Heriditory or genetic reason cannot be ruled out.
Early parental loss, sexual abuse, abnormal brain structure all could be the reason.
But it is pathetic to have schizophrenia.

“experience it as a terrifying journey through a world ofmadness no one can understand, particularly the person travelling through it. It isa journey through a world that is deranged, empty, and devoid of anchors to reality. You feel very much alone. You find it easier to withdraw than cope with a reality that is incongruent with your fantasy world. You feel tormented by distorted perceptions. You cannot distinguish what is real from what is unreal.

Schizophrenia affects all aspects of your life. Your thoughts race and you feel fragmented and so very alone with your "craziness..."

The patient suffer from
reduced attention span, difficulties with memory, reasoning,
judgement, problem solving, and decision making.
Memory is particularly impaired. the ability to plan,
prioritize and implement strategies is also disrupted.

Effects:
People with schizophrenia often withdraw and isolate themselves leading to Relationships problems
Disruption to normal daily activities
Alcohol and drug abuse
Increased suicide risk

Schizophrenia is a neurological disorder that strikes young people in
their prime. It is a medical illness. NO ONE IS IMMUNE

RECOVERY

Dr. G. Gross, author of a 22-year
study of 508 patients with schizophrenia:
“ ...schizophrenia does not seem to be a disease of slow, progressive
deterioration. Even in the second and third decades of illness, there is
still potential for full or partial recovery.”

Be aware of this social stigma - create awareness - help treat schizophrenia affected people at early stage.

Rehabilitation centers, Yoga treatments, Retrival to naturs abode all make a difference
