Schizophrenia- Mental Disorders

2.4 million people are affected yearly by a mental illness

Symptoms

People with personality disorder have trouble dealing with everyday stress in daily activities. These people tend to be non social and don't do well working with other people or in groups and over all socially awkward. Sometimes people diagnosed with a mental disease may not even know it for a majority of his or her life.

Treatment

Talk therapy is usually the first choice of treatment (unlike some other illnesses where medication is often first.) Generally, treatment involves sessions with a mental health counselor. For therapy to be effective, people must trust their therapist.
