Schizophrenia can be a frightening diagnosis, but it doesn't have to define your life. While finding the right treatment can take time and setbacks are common, most people with schizophrenia get better over time, not worse. With the right medication, therapy, and support, many people with schizophrenia are able to control their symptoms, gain greater independence, and lead rich, fulfilling lives.
Getting a diagnosis of schizophrenia can be devastating. But with proper treatment, self-help, and support, many people are able to manage their symptoms and enjoy a rewarding life.
If someone close to you has schizophrenia, you can make a huge difference by helping that person find the right treatment and self-help strategies and build a fulfilling life.
