Description

A diagnosis of schizophrenia is a label that most people don’t truly understand and would never want to be put upon them. Those who have experienced treatment for a thought disorder are acutely aware of the traditional methods of treatment and the use of pharmaceutical drugs as a primary form of treatment.
