Schizophrenia is a chronic, disabling mental disorder. It is believed to be related to genetics or abnormalities in both the brain's structure and biochemical activities. Symptoms of this illness, which typically emerge in young people in their teens or twenties, may include hallucinations, social withdrawal, and delusions. People with schizophrenia often require medication to control the most troubling symptoms, and once symptoms improve, psychotherapy and self-help groups are typically necessary.
