Schizophrenia is unfortunately, and unfairly, one of the most misunderstood and misrepresented mental health conditions. In reality, it is not a case of having a 'split personality' or being an aggressive individual. Have a read of the six common schizophrenia myths being dissected and corrected here.
Symptoms of schizophrenia can include;
Auditory or visual hallucinations (hearing or seeing things that aren't there)
Unusual beliefs that are not true (delusion)
Lack of personal hygiene
Unwillingness to socialise
Lack of interest in usual activities
