Datamonitor Healthcare CNS Disease Analysis: Schizophrenia
December 15, 2020Schizophrenia is a serious mental illness characterized by incoherent thoughts, bizarre behavior, and delusions or hallucinations. The American Psychiatric Association defines schizophrenia as a chronic brain disorder, which actively presents with delusions, hallucinations, lack of motivation, and issues with thinking and concentration. Schizophrenia is a psychotic disorder that typically first presents in adolescence and young adulthood. The condition is associated with a prodromal period that can last for months or years, during which emotional, behavioral, and attenuated psychotic symptoms first appear. The functional consequences of schizophrenia confer prominent social and occupational dysfunction. The disorder substantially hinders educational progress, employment, and the extent of social contact.
