    Schizophrenia usually starts in the late teens or early adulthood, although it can develop at any age. It is rare for children to develop schizophrenia disorder.

    The exact causes of schizophrenia are not known, but researchers believe that a combination of genetic, environmental, and brain chemistry factors may play a role.

    There is a genetic component to schizophrenia, but it is not entirely hereditary. While people with a family history of schizophrenia are at higher risk of developing the condition, many people with no family history also develop schizophrenia.

    Schizophrenia is diagnosed through a comprehensive evaluation that includes a physical exam, lab tests, and a psychiatric evaluation. A doctor or mental health professional will look for symptoms that meet the criteria outlined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5).

    The main treatments for schizophrenia are antipsychotic medications, psychotherapy, and social and vocational skills training. A combination of these treatments is frequently most effective.

    While there is no cure for schizophrenia, many people with the condition are able to manage their symptoms and live fulfilling lives with the help of treatment and support. Recovery is often a lifelong process that involves ongoing treatment and management.

    Yes, many people with schizophrenia are able to work or go to school with the right treatment and support. Vocational and educational support can be helpful in finding and maintaining employment or education opportunities.

    Family and friends can support someone with schizophrenia by providing emotional support, helping them access treatment and support services, and encouraging them to stick to their treatment plan. It can also be helpful to educate oneself about the condition and to be patient and understanding with the person's symptoms and behavior.
