Schizophrenia - Extreme States of Mind - Part 2

0 ratings

Video Description

Dr. John Breeding, ph.D. Psychologist, talks about schizophrenia and some of the symptoms related to it such as hallucination and catatonia. Is schizophrenia a mental illness or a psychological disorder? How can people recover? Is medication necessary for treating sufferers? The problem with medications is that they can only control symptoms but are not a cure for mental disorders. Moreover, some of them have severe side effects and sometimes cause neurological damage, movement disorder, diabetes, and weight gain.
