Schizophrenia Treatment


Schizophrenia is a serious mental disorder that affects the way a person thinks, feels, and behaves. The condition typically develops in the late teen or early adult years, and is characterized by symptoms such as hallucinations, delusions, disorganized speech and behavior, and negative symptoms such as social withdrawal, apathy, and lack of motivation.

While schizophrenia is often portrayed in movies and media as a condition characterized by split personalities or extreme violence, this is not an accurate representation of the disorder. In reality, schizophrenia is a complex and chronic mental illness that can have a profound impact on a person’s ability to function in their daily life.

It is estimated that approximately 20 million people affected worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. The disorder affects people of all races, cultures, and socioeconomic backgrounds, and can have a devastating impact on both the individual and their family members.

The causes of schizophrenia are not fully understood, but research suggests that a combination of genetic, environmental, and neurobiological factors may contribute to its development.

If you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms of schizophrenia, it is important to seek help from a mental health professional. The compassionate clinicians at Omi Psychiatry & TMS specialize in the treatment of schizophrenia and other serious mental disorders.



Schizophrenia is a complex mental disorder that can manifest in a variety of ways. The symptoms of schizophrenia can be divided into three main categories: positive symptoms, negative symptoms, and cognitive symptoms.


They involve a distortion or addition to a person’s thoughts, feelings, or behaviors. These symptoms can include hallucinations (perceiving things that aren’t there), delusions (strongly held false beliefs), disordered thinking or speech, and abnormal motor behavior. Hallucinations may involve hearing voices or seeing things that aren’t present, while delusions may involve beliefs such as being persecuted or having special powers.

    NegativE SYMPTOMs:

    They involve a loss of normal function or behaviors. These symptoms can include social withdrawal, apathy, lack of motivation, and reduced emotional expression. Negative symptoms can be particularly challenging as they can lead to difficulty forming relationships and participating in activities. Difficulty waiting or taking turns.

    CognitivE SYMPTOMS:

    They involve a disruption in a person’s ability to think clearly or focus their attention. These symptoms can include difficulty with memory, attention, and decision making. Cognitive symptoms can also lead to difficulties with everyday tasks and functioning in society.

    It’s important to note that not everyone with schizophrenia will experience all of these symptoms, and symptoms can vary in severity and frequency over time. Early recognition and treatment of symptoms is crucial in managing the disorder and improving outcomes. If you or someone you know is experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to seek help. At Omi Psychiatry & TMS, we can help.
