Leven met Schizofrenie

Schizophrenia is an illness affecting the brain and rooted within the biological functions of the brain cells. It is a very complex illness which is still not completely understood, although it has been studied in detail for over 100 years since it was first described by Dr Emil Krapelin in 1887. It tends to strike most often in late teens and early twenties, slightly earlier in men than in women, although late onset illness can occur as late as the 70s. Schizophrenia before puberty is very rare.┬á
