Schizophrenia is considered a long-term mental health disorder involving the breakdown in relation between thought and emotion leading to faulty perception.
Schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder is a mental illness that affects how a person thinks, feels, and acts. Those with schizophrenia can appear as though they’re out of touch with reality, which causes much distress for the individual who is suffering from schizophrenia but also their family and friends as well. If left untreated, the symptoms of schizophrenia can be constant and disabling. However, effective treatments are available at Crownview Telehealth. We’re here to help affected individuals so that they’re once again able to immerse themselves in their school or work, reach independence, and enjoy relationships.
Schizophrenia Symptoms can vary in type and severity, and can change over periods of time. These symptoms may include:
– Disorganized Speech
– Abnormal Motor Behavior
– Negative Symptoms
Managing schizophrenia is a lifelong process. Recovery doesn’t mean an end to the challenges, the illness, or the symptoms, but it does mean that you’re learning how to effectively manage your symptoms. So you can develop the support that you need and create a satisfying life despite your illness.
Our online schizophrenia test can be taken to help you determine if you have this mental illness, at any stage. The output when you complete the quiz will provide an estimate of your risk of becoming schizophrenic and what those with a risk should do next. Please note: this is not a diagnostic tool and only a licensed medical professional or doctor can diagnose you with a mental health disorder.
