“Schizophrenia can be a frightening diagnosis, but it doesn’t have to define your life. While finding the right treatment can take time and setbacks are common, most people with schizophrenia get better over time, not worse. With the right medication, therapy, and support, many people with schizophrenia are able to control their symptoms, gain greater independence, and lead rich, fulfilling lives.”
