"About Us"
Schizophrenia is a type of psychotic disorder that greatly alters how a person thinks, perceives, feels, and behaves
Delusions and hallucinations are common, especially those that produce the feeling of a loss of personal identity
Onset generally develops slowly over several months (or even years) and typically occurs during early adulthood or late adolescence
Early intervention is important for reducing treatment delays and optimizing chances for recovery
