Schizophrenia, Psychosis and Bipolar Disorders

Schizophrenia, Psychosis and Bipolar Disorders

Schizophrenia is an illness characterized by a group of so-called positive symptoms that may include hallucinations (hearing voices, seeing visions), delusions (fixed false beliefs), and/or a thought disorder (speech that makes little sense). Words are spoken, but the connections between sentences or paragraphs are illogical. Bipolar disorder is a psychiatric illness that is characterized by episodes of mania.  Symptoms include euphoria, distractibility, irritability, and grandiosity. Psychiatrists often see patients with a mixture of the above symptoms, and it may be difficult to determine whether a patient has schizophrenia or bipolar disorder even after following him or her for many years.

  • Sexual abuse and Substance-use disorders.
  • Genetics.
  • Split personality or dissociative identity disorder.
  • Electroconvulsive therapy.
