What Is Schizophrenia?
Schizophrenia is a mental illness that makes people lose touch with reality. People who suffer from schizophrenia often behave in inappropriate or nonsensical ways. Because of these odd behaviors, it’s hard for others to care for or interact with them.
Those who suffer from schizophrenia often have irrational actions, thoughts, or speech patterns. One example of such behavior is hysterical laughter after hearing something that’s not funny. Someone with schizophrenia, for instance, may find death funny and break into laughter. However, this isn’t the same as nervous laughter, which is very common for people.
Schizophrenia is often a mental disorder that requires lifelong treatment. Even after the symptoms go away, ongoing treatment may be required to maintain stability. It’s important to keep in mind that there’s no universal treatment for schizophrenia. Treating this disorder usually involves a mix of medications and therapies.
During their mental health treatment, residents learn skills to help them deal with their mental disorder. For example, individual therapy can help people normalize their thought patterns. It can also help them identify warning signs of schizophrenia relapse.
At Rose Hill Center, we help our residents determine the best course of treatment for their situations. Our schizophrenia treatment involves a full team of doctors, case managers, and therapists who help people overcome the disorder.
