Of all the diagnoses, clients with schizophrenia tend to be the most stigmatized. Schizophrenia can feel overwhelming to the person experiencing the symptoms. Witnessing or interfacing with an individual with schizophrenia can elicit feelings of fear and anxiety in friends and family of the individual exhibiting symptoms, and even for caretakers and other personnel assigned to manage such individuals. Without mechanisms to harness, manage, or eradicate the symptoms, living with schizophrenia can feel overwhelming and out of control. With the help of our mental health treatment programs, you can begin the road to recovery.

The hallmarks of schizophrenia are the presence of delusions, hallucinations, and disorganized thinking.
There are six types of delusions that individuals that have schizophrenia may experience, which are as follows:
They may also experience at least one of either delusions, hallucinations, or disorganized speech. These symptoms must be significantly present for most of the time during one month. Simultaneously, they may experience symptoms of a major depressive episode or a manic episode.
There are several types of hallucinations that may affect those with schizophrenia. These may include auditory hallucinations. This is when the individual believes they have heard a sound as emanated from an external source when in fact, there has been no distinct sound. Usually, these sounds are heard as words spoken in a voice that the individual does not attribute as their own. Religiously inspired auditory hallucinations can be considered within the realm of normal depending on the cultural context as well. You may also experience visual hallucinations. This is when the individual believes they have seen an image of something real that does not, in fact, exist.
Disorganized thinking is a term that is wide-ranging and may include:
