Schizophrenia is a mental illness that occurs in about 1% of the population and usually begins to show signs in late adolescence or early adulthood. It appears slowly with a decline in ability to concentrate and focus on schoolwork or other activities, withdrawal from friends and social groups, and an increase in what appears as day dreaming and “escape from reality”. Often this happens without those closest to the person realizing what is happening until a crisis appears. For information about schizophrenia, please view the various videos below.
The society depends on contributions from individuals and corporations with an interest in combating mental illness. There are not enough funding opportunities for research on schizophrenia provided by public and private funds. Thus, the society hopes to bridge this gap in order to facilitate more rapid progress toward eradicating schizophrenia. Please consider donating by clicking here.
