This blog is created by two college students who have a goal in mind. To educate the public about the seriousness and frequency of schizophrenia occurring in the United States through WordPress and persuade the viewers to donate to The Mental Health Research Association (NARSAD) for scientific research on schizophrenia.
You may be thinking “Why does this relate to me?” or “Why should I care?”. The answer is simple. You may not know it but schizophrenia affects 2.4 million people in the United States. Though it may seem small, it can affect an entire society in an instant.
Family members, relatives, friends, and more have to face the struggles of having someone they know diagnosed with schizophrenia. It is not just an illness that affects the victim, both others who are affiliated with them as well.
Schizophrenia is a mental disorder characterized by a breakdown of thought processes and by a deficit of typical emotional responses. What this basically means is that a person suffering from schizophrenia cannot think clearly and does not experience a wide range of emotions that a normal person would.
