Do you know that?


question mark 3

Do you know that there are misconceptions that the public hold with regard to mental illness ?

They believe that nobody recovers from schizophrenia as it is an untreatabe disease.They believe that people with schizophrenia are unreliable and lazy. They believe that schizophenia is the result of a deliberate weakness of will and character.

They believe that people with schizophrenia cannot reliably report the effects of treatment. They think that people with schizophrenia cannot make rational decisions about where they should live – for example.

They believe that people with this illness cannot work. AND, last but not least, they believe that schizophrenia is the fault of parents all over the world.
