Do U Know - Schizophrenia

Nearly 6 – 7 million Indians suffer from this brain disorder variously described as the “Cancer of the mind” and the “Greatest disabler of youth".

Its Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia (skit-zo-free-nia) is a term coined by the famous Swiss Psychiatrist, Eugene Bleuler in the year 1911 which was accepted later worldwide.

It denotes a severe and complex mental illness wherein the patient loses the ability to think, feel or behave in a normal way. The patient perceives a distorted reality but is usually unaware that of the illness. Patients also suffer from delusions ie. firmly held but false beliefs and begin to act on them. As a result of their faulty thinking and perception, their behavior becomes abnormal. It starts in the most productive period of life 15 - 45 years. It cuts across barriers of gender, educational and social classes. The exact cause of the illness is not known as yet. Research into the illness continues; what has emerged in recent years is a bio psychosocial model of the illness.
