    schizophrenia. schizophrenia A Handbook For Families, Published by Health Canada in Cooperation with the schizophrenia Society of Canada What Is schizophrenia?
    Schizophrenia: A Handbook For Families Published by Health Canada in Co-operation with the Schizophrenia Society of Canada
    This handbook is dedicated to the families and to their loved ones who carry the burden of schizophrenia, a major psychiatric disorder.
    Production of the handbook was made possible by a grant under the Health Promotion Contribution Program of Health and Welfare Canada. Its preparation was largely in the capable hands of Ms. Sharon Jennings, Communications Consultant, whose services were retained by the Schizophrenia Society of Canada (SSOC)* for that purpose. Overall supervision of the project was provided by Peter MacGibbon, Executive Director, SSOC, ably assisted by Karina Torrese, Executive Assistant, SSOC. Ms. Barbara Dubuc and her colleagues in the Mental Health Division of Health and Welfare Canada also gave valuable advice and suggestions. In addition, Health and Welfare Canada provided funds to cover the cost of printing. A wealth of practical information was derived from the real-life experiences of relatives as caregivers for a family member or members who have schizophrenia. Most of this input originated in three focus group meetings. The first of these, which included participants from Ontario Friends of Schizophrenics, was organized with help from Ms. June Beeby, Executive Director of that provincial association, and held in Toronto. The second meeting occurred in Montreal. It brought together representatives from member organizations of la Federation quebecoise des associations des familles et amis de la personne atteinte de maladie mentale. The arrangements for this meeting were made by the Federation's President, M. Paul-Emile Poirier. The final meeting comprised members from the Schizophrenia Society of Nova Scotia assembled under the direction of Ms. Barbara Bingham, President of that association. and took place in Halifax.

    Welcome to my home page here in Guelph Ontario Canada. I have schizophrenia and have been on medication now since 1990, the length of time I have lived in Guelph. I'm 50 and my schizophrenia became apparent in late adolescence. I struggled for ten years between 1980 and 1990, in psychosis, alone and very poor. I eventually got in trouble with the law and received three years probation with the condition that I see a psychiatrist for those three years. I've been to jail, been actively alcoholic, attempted suicide, and been homeless. My story illustrates an interplay of biology and sociology that can make schizophrenia a devastating illness. There is the illness itself, and the way we, as a society, treat people who develop it. There is good cause for optimism though. The atypical medications are more effective with fewer side effects. There is growing recognition of the value of early intervention and relapse prevention. The public is developing an interest in schizophrenia. These three trends promise a far less destructive schizophrenia then what I had to experience. Psychosis is a like a heart attack. It is a serious health event. You should only have one episode in your life if you have schizophrenia. The charts are mostly from dinner presentations and conferences I have attended over the last eight years. I have permission to use them here. The information here is correct to the best of my knowledge, and I am indebted to many psychiatrists for answering my questions about schizophrenia. I also have the benefit of my experience, both on and off medication. The guestbook files are quite large and this site is now

    Schizophrenia is probably the most debilitating and unforgiving of all the mental disorders. It keeps people from functioning at school, at work, in relationships, and in society. Schizophrenia is a disorder characterized primarily by psychotic symptoms, including the following:
    • Hallucinations —false visual, auditory, or tactile perceptions without a realistic basis or external cause
    • Delusions —exaggerated or distorted thoughts and perceptions of self and others; or unrealistic belief in ability, knowledge, or ideas
    • Disorganized thought —including nonsensical associations and disorganized speech
    • Disorganized behavior —including aggressiveness and wild gestures
    • Difficulty showing or expressing emotion —including flattened behavior (rigid posture, inability to move or talk, unresponsiveness)

    Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe, and disabling This is a time of hope for people with schizophrenia and their families. Research is gradually leading to new and safer medications and unraveling the complex causes of the disease. Scientists are using many approaches from the study of molecular genetics to the study of populations to learn about schizophrenia. Methods of imaging the brain’s structure and function hold the promise of new insights into the disorder. Schizophrenia as an Illness Schizophrenia is found all over the world. The severity of the symptoms and long-lasting, chronic pattern of schizophrenia often cause a high degree of disability. Medications and other treatments for schizophrenia, when used regularly and as prescribed, can help reduce and control the distressing symptoms of the illness. However, some people are not greatly helped by available treatments or may prematurely discontinue treatment because of unpleasant side effects or other reasons. Even when treatment is effective, persisting consequences of the illness—lost opportunities, stigma, residual symptoms, and medication side effects—may be very troubling.

    The Relationship Between
    A Bibliographic Essay
    ~ Sandra Stahlman, June 1992 The nature of schizophrenia, and other forms of psychosis, is still under debate and a significant issue is the relationship between psychosis and the mystical, or religious, experience. Throughout history this question has been addressed by scholars from all fields of inquiry. Currently, psychologists are looking at the similarities and differences between the experiences, hoping to shed light on the nature, process, and treatment of psychosis. I was curious to see what has been discovered.
    The information available on mystical experience and psychotic episodes seems limitless. This paper will focus on the current psychological perspective which examines mystical and psychotic experiences as a natural, universal phenomena. This is not a new idea; however, specific to recent research is its objective, systematic nature. Looking to define both in value-neutral, experiential terms, psychologists are scrutinizing the biological, psychological, and behavioral correlates of the two experiences, combining information from ongoing measurement and personal interviews and the body of knowledge available from philosophy and the study of religion.
    In order to discover the relationship between mystical experience and psychosis, analysis must first be directed at defining each individually. Therefore I present not only a review of the current psychological research regarding this relationship, but also a look at theories addressing the questions "what is a mystical experience?" and "what is psychosis?"

    Schizophrenia is a mental disorder that severely impacts how 2.5 million Americans think, feel, and act. It is a disorder that makes it difficult for a person to tell the difference between real and imagined experiences, to think logically, to express normal emotional responses or to behave appropriately in social situations. Schizophrenia can be draining on both the person with schizophrenia and their families. People with schizophrenia often have difficulty functioning in society, at work and in school. Family members may have to help out financially and make sure that medication is taken as prescribed. No cure for schizophrenia has been discovered, but with proper treatment, many people with this illness can lead productive and fulfilling lives.

The work being done by "Decode Genetics, Inc." in particular seems to be some of the most forward looking and progressive. Decode's work represents the first time a gene has been identified by two independent studies to be associated with schizophrenia.

    TREATMENTS IN SCHIZOPHRENIA Above: Asklepios - the God of medicine and healing Antipsychotic drugs
    The corner stone when treating schizphrenia is with no doubt medication with so called antipsychotic drugs, or neuroleptics. This group of medications consists of a number of chemical substances, and is divided into several subgroups. These have all shown to be very efficient in reducing the psychotic symptoms in schizophrenia, but vary in terms of the side effects they may cause.
