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.
