Schizophrenia is a serious mental illness that causes people to experience hallucinations, delusions, disorganized thinking, and negative symptoms that often include being emotionally flat or speaking in a dull, or disconnected way.*

Schizophrenia can be treated with medication and therapy, and many individuals are able to live full lives after being diagnosed.
