Schizophrenia is a mental illness that affects how the brain works. People with schizophrenia experience psychosis, which means they can have serious problems with thinking clearly, emotions, and knowing what is real and what is not (YourHealthinMind, 2020). It is also known as the extreme form of anxiety which is normally marked by stress, tension and exertion.
Research has proved that men and women gave a ratio of 50 percent to get Schizophrenia and are prone to it. This disease, as mentioned by American Psychological Association (APA), is not 100 percent recoverable rather only 1 person out of every 7 persons who are affected by Schizophrenia gets recovered thus the recovery rates are less than 20 percent of the overall ratio.
It is not possible to predict how schizophrenia will affect someone’s life, because the symptoms, severity and pattern of illness over time differ widely between people. The impact of the illness also depends on the treatment and support they get to recover and stay well. The risk of being unable to work or live independently is higher when schizophrenia remains untreated for a long time or when a person does not get support to continue friendships and normal activities. The mental and physical health problems caused by Schizophrenia are as follows;
Recovering from anxiety and schizophrenia in specific can be very challenging for the patient and for the people around him or her. Thus the best way to tackle this issue is to consult a Psychologist or an experienced mental health professional which will help people recover from this concern.

Schizophrenia is a mental illness that affects how the brain works. People with schizophrenia experience psychosis, which means they can have serious problems with thinking clearly, emotions, and knowing what is real and what is not.
This can include hearing or seeing things that are not there (hallucinations), and having very strange beliefs that are abnormal or not true (delusions).
Having psychosis often makes a person want to keep away from other people. They may have problems understanding other people’s emotions and may feel depressed or irritable.
What causes schizophrenia?
The causes of schizophrenia are not yet fully understood.
Some things that make it more likely that someone will develop schizophrenia are:
• having particular genes
• physical injuries to the brain
• traumatic experiences
• using drugs such as cannabis.
Symptoms of schizophrenia
Symptoms vary from person to person, and commonly include:
• hearing or seeing things that are not real (hallucinations)
• having very strange beliefs (delusions)
• unusual thinking and speech
• having problems thinking clearly
• not being able to make decisions and having trouble
• having trouble interpreting other people’s emotions and
• Suicidal thoughts.
Some symptoms are described as ‘positive’ and others as ‘negative’.
Common ‘positive’ symptoms are hallucinations and delusions. (These are called ‘positive’ because they are extra experiences that are not part of the normal experience).
Common ‘negative’ symptoms are: a loss of enjoyment of things, being unable to feel emotions, loss of interest in being with other people, and not being bothered to do anything. (These are called ‘negative’ because something is missing).
