What is Schizophrenia?

Schizophrenia is a very serious illness plaguing 1% (or 3.2 million) of people around the world. This is a chronic, disabling brain disorder which can drive a sufferer to withdraw from everyday life. Sufferers of Schizophrenia have reported hearing voices in their head that no one else hears to people being able to read their minds. They also think their thoughts are being told to the outside world and many convince themselves that others are planning to bring harm to them.

Due to these voices, thoughts, and feelings, Schizophrenics become fearful and show extreme agitation when approached. Some will sit for hours without moving or saying a word; but when they do decide to speak, the thoughts which are running through their head make no sense. Schizophrenics have a difficult time keeping a job and caring for themselves and it leads to burdening the family to take responsibility to take care for them.
