Severe Psychopathology

Severe psychopathological disorders and symptoms can be incredibly disabling and difficult to deal with for both those diagnosed with a disorder as well as close family members and friends.

Schizophrenia is one such disorder, whereby individuals battle to distinguish between what is real and unreal. The way in which such an individual thinks, feels and behaves is affected by the disorder.

The individual's altered perception of reality makes it difficult to continue with their daily activities. This psychotic disorder can be managed with a combination of support, medications and psychotherapy.
