About one person in a hundred will be diagnosed with schizophrenia at some time in their life. The condition can be severe and debilitating with symptoms such as delusions, hallucinations and the loss of concentration, motivation and social skills. But schizophrenia is not a degenerative or life-threatening condition and in recent years improved knowledge and understanding, psychological treatments and more tolerable medication have greatly increased people's ability to manage their symptoms and live a 'normal' life.

This straightforward, accessible and inspiring guide provides information on:

- The myths and misconceptions surrounding schizophrenia

- The possible causes and how the illness is diagnosed

- Medication and other treatment options; sources of support

- Improving health and well-being

- Employment - paid and voluntary

- Complementary therapies

- Counselling and psychotherapy

The guide also includes the latest research findings and personal accounts of recovery by people with the diagnosis.

Reviews and Endorsements

'People diagnosed with schizophrenia need to know about issues such as sources of support, counselling, psychotherapy, state benefits, legal rights and mental health law. Fortunately, all this information and more is now available in a highly readable form in this book. It gives me great pleasure to recommend Roz D'Ombraine Hewitt's work to patients, their families and loved-ones, and care-givers. She has written an excellent book which will be much appreciated.'
- Professor Basant K. Puri, Hammersmith Hospital & Imperial College, London
