In this presentation, I will inform you of schizophrenia so you may better understand.
A brain disorder in which people interpret reality abnormally.
- In this picture you can see that Schizophrenia is most popular in Asia and South America.
- Schizophrenia has the highest suicide rate of all psychiatric disorders.
- It is estimated that people who suffer from Schizophrenia fill 50% of the hospitals beds in psychiatric unit and 25% of all hospital beds.
- Schizophrenia is among the top ten causes of disabilities in the developed countries around the world.
Ways To Address
In my opinion a way we could help address schizophrenia would be to get help as soon as possible. If we catch the problem early on we may be able to contain it early on. At the point in time now, there is no real cure for schizophrenia, so whatever medication necessary to control or maintain it will help in any way possible.
Why It Matters
I think schizophrenia matters because like in any other illness no one wants to see a loved one die early on. We all want our children to be able to meet their grandparents, that of which I was not able to do. We also would not want to suffer the pain of watching our loved one's deteriorate through out their lives.
