Schizophrenia is a mental health disorder where people experience repeated psychotic episodes.
Schizophrenia symptoms are classified as positive and negative.
This mental health disorder is in the top 15 leading causes for disabilities, worldwide.
More research is needed on the causes, but there is a lot of evidence for genetic factors, and certain lifestyle factors that have been associated with an increased risk of schizophrenia.
