Schizophrenia Myths

Many mental illnesses are widely misunderstood, and Schizophrenia is certainly near the top of that list. Let’s break some myths, shall we?

– Schizophrenia is a medical illness and is NOT the result of trauma.
– It is treatable, and early detection and treatment WORK.
– Men and women are affected equally.
– Schizophrenia does not discriminate – it affects people worldwide, from all cultures, ethnicities, and social classes.

This devastating mental illness affects roughly 1 in 100 people across the globe, and it’s time to shatter the stigma surrounding it.

We challenge you to take some time and educate yourself further on this condition, helping break down the barriers those in your community with this illness may be facing.
