What Is Schizophrenia, Anyway?

This chronic, disabling brain disorder affects about 2.2 million Americans. Its symptoms typically appear in the late teen years or twenties. Although there is no cure for schizophrenia, it is treatable and manageable. Michael Jibson, MD, PhD, Prof. of Psychiatry and Director, UM Psychiatry Residency Education, and expert on schizophrenia, has written extensively about this disease and has a special interest in the medications used to treat it.
