How to communicate with others
People with schizophrenia often worry about what other people think about the disorder.
This can stop them from talking to people about their illness. A commonly held view is that people suffering from schizophrenia are ‘violent criminals’ or have ‘split personalities’. Family and friends can help raise awareness of schizophrenia by being open about the condition and talking about its impact. Ensuring a positive relationship exists between the person with schizophrenia and their relatives, in which they feel valued, can help improve their self-confidence.
