Have you ever asked yourself what is mental illness? Have you ever wondered what it is like to live with a mental illness? "The Split Mind" enters into the psyche of a person with paranoid schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is an illness that is marked by delusions and disturbed thought. The patient's state of mind will usually remain in a highly irrational or illusionary state. The patient then loses his sense of the real world, in favour of a world that is based purely on false beliefs. This illness inevitably splits the patient's focus out of the real world, into a world based on falsehoods and unattested thoughts.
According to researchers, schizophrenia is caused by a chemical imbalance. In effect, there are abnormal levels of different neurotransmitters within the patient's brain. Dopamine may be a key neurotransmitter behind delusional thoughts.
This chemical imbalance can be corrected through medications or other varying methods. Nevertheless, scientists, as of yet, have not discovered a permanent cure. The recovery process for the patient will usually be slow because he must take certain steps to ensure that a relapse will never occur.
As an illness, schizophrenia may be no different from any other disease. It is a disease that affects the human brain. No patients develop schizophrenia because of any psychological or behavioural problems. It is a genetic disease that is highly treatable, and through perseverance, highly recoverable.
