Treatment for Schizophrenia at Eagle View Behavioral Health

Schizophrenia is a serious mental disorder that can significantly impair a person’s cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning. It affects fundamental systems in the brain, leading to alterations in a person’s thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Those with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder may experience challenges in distinguishing between what is real and what is not. Additionally, they may struggle to regulate their emotions and express them appropriately. As a chronic mental illness, schizophrenia can cause individuals to feel disconnected from reality. Although less prevalent than other mental health conditions, schizophrenia can be highly debilitating due to its symptoms.
