A person with schizophrenia may have trouble telling the difference between what is real and what is imagined, may be withdrawn or unresponsive, and may find it difficult to express normal emotions in social settings. Schizophrenia is a serious disorder that affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves.

Contrary to popular belief, schizophrenia is not split personality or multiple personality, the vast majority of those who have it are not violent and do not pose a threat to others, it is not brought on by traumatic experiences in childhood, ineffective parenting, or a lack of willpower, and not everyone who has it experiences the same symptoms.

Types of schizophrenia-

Paranoid schizophrenia— a person has intense feelings of suspicion, persecution, grandiosity, or a combination of these feelings.

Disorganized schizophrenia— a person frequently speaks and thinks erratically, but they might not be delusional.

Catatonic schizophrenia— a person often assumes incredibly odd body positions and is reclusive, mute, and negative.

Residual schizophrenia— despite no longer having hallucinations or delusions, a person lacks motivation or interest in life.

Schizoaffective disorder–a person exhibits signs of major mood disorders like depression as well as schizophrenia.

Causes–There are many theories as to why schizophrenia develops, including those involving genetics (heredity), biology (the imbalance in brain chemistry), and/or potential viral infections and immune disorders.

Genetics (Heredity).Schizophrenia can be brought on by environmental factors like viral infections, extremely stressful situations, or a combination of both, according to scientists, who also recognize that the disorder tends to run in families and that a person inherits a tendency to develop the disease.

Schizophrenia manifests during periods of physical and hormonal change in the body, such as those that take place during puberty in adolescence, like some other genetically based illnesses.

Chemistry.People with schizophrenia have an imbalance of the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, which allow nerve cells in the brain to communicate with each other. This imbalance affects how a person’s brain reacts to stimuli, which explains why a person with schizophrenia may be overwhelmed by sensory information (loud music or bright lights, for example).

Early warning signs of schizophrenia include the following behaviors: Hearing or seeing things that aren’t there. Constantly feeling watched. Speaking or writing in an odd or absurd manner. Posing strangely. Feeling indifferent to very important situations. Deteriorating academic or professional performance. A change in personal hygiene and appearance. A change in personality. Increasing withdrawal from social situations. Irrational, angry, or fearful responses.
