What is Schizophrenia?

Schizophrenia is a chronic and severe mental disorder that affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves. People with schizophrenia may seem like they have lost touch with reality. The symptoms of schizophrenia fall into three categories: positive, negative, and cognitive.1

Currently, there are only FDA-approved medications on the market for positive symptoms.

Positive symptoms: Hallucinations, delusions, thought disorders (unusual or dysfunctional ways of thinking), and/or movement disorders (agitated body movements)

Negative symptoms: “Flat affect” (reduced expression of emotions via facial expression or voice tone), reduced feelings of pleasure in everyday life, difficulty beginning and sustaining activities, and/or reduced speaking

Cognitive symptoms: Poor executive functioning (the ability to understand information and use it to make decisions), trouble focusing or paying attention, and/or problems with working memory (the ability to use information immediately after learning it)

While researchers are still looking for safer and more effective medications for positive symptoms, many clinical research studies are now focusing on improving negative and cognitive symptoms.
