The schizophrenic disorder

This is a personality disorder characterized by social withdrawal, isolation, difficulty distinguishing between what is real and unreal, difficulty managing feelings and emotions, thinking clearly or by thinking negatively even when it is not the case. Individuals suffering from schizophrenia have difficulties distinguishing between reality and imagination and are sometimes unresponsive and unable to express themselves in social settings. The schizoaffective disorder combines features from both schizophrenia and depression or bipolar disorder. It occurs in early young adult years and appears to be more frequent in women while affecting around 1% of general population.

Causes of this mental illness are yet unknown but the factors to be incriminated are biological imbalances in the brain neurotransmitters that determine a different process of senses and lead to delusions or hallucinations and genetic factors which determine the tendency of the condition to run in families.
