The Disorders



Need Help?
Schizophrenia strikes 1% of the world's population at some point in their lives. It affects people from all walks of life, usually young people between the ages of 15 and 30. Not everyone will experience the same symptoms, but some symptoms, such as hearing voices, are common to many. Schizophrenia alters the way people think and feel, so that perceptions may be changed and thinking can be disturbed. This is very disabling for them and very distressing for their families. Other serious mental illnesses, including bipolar disorder, schizo-affective disorder and majordepression, are also very debilitating. Fortunately, research is bringing about a new era in treatment and understanding of these disorders. While cause and cure are still elusive, substantial strides have been made in the development of medications to treat these conditions. With modern medical treatment, opportunities for rehabilitation, and the support of family and friends, these diagnoses need not be as feared as they were in the past. The World Fellowship for Schizophrenia and Allied Disorders is the only worldwide international organization dedicated to lessening the problems faced by people with serious mental illness and their families. Our members include family support and advocacy organizations in over 50 countries (

45. Pasadena Villa - Orlando
A unique residential treatment facility for adults suffering from chronic mental illness. Specializes in residential services for schizophrenia and Asperger's Syndrome.
Residential Treatment For Adults
Services Resident Guide About Us ... Resources Pasadena Villa, located in Orlando, Florida, is a premier residential treatment facility for adults and young adults with mental illness, and those with co-existing psychiatric and substance abuse issues. Pasadena Villa provides a comprehensive program in a very comfortable and therapeutic environment complimented by many amenities. Pasadena Villa implements a truly unique social integration model as the key component of treatment. No matter what diagnoses our residents have upon coming to our facility, they all share similar impairments and deficits in social functioning. We believe that the best way to accurately identify social strengths and deficits is to immerse our residents into a wide variety of social situations, observe their behaviors, and develop treatment goals around individually specific issues. Our residents engage in traditional individual and group therapies, but social and recreational activities with licensed psychotherapists outside of our facility, rather than traditional psychotherapy, form our core treatment intervention.

Testing times for the elderly: should there be a national screening programme in the UK for Mild Cognitive Impairment? Jennifer L Bostock, October 1st 2003
Introduction In the United States it is estimated that by the year 2050 the number of people with Alzheimer's disease (AD) will increase nearly threefold unless preventative measures are taken. Positive advantages of screening for MCI
In conclusion, MCI screening appears better for patients, professionals and the NHS than some screening programmes already sanctioned by the government. If we believe that prevention is better than cure, then we must recognise that the first way to prevent a disease is to establish who is at most risk of getting it. Politically the government is committed both to health promotion, disease prevention and to increasing the NHS budget . The government also recognises that the population is changing and that the elderly play a major role in the future of this country. Surely then it is only a matter of time before we recognise that a national screening programme for cognitive impairment is as important as screening for breast and cervical cancer.

Collaboration with Prof. Dr. D. Vonderschmitt, Chem. Inst. University Hospital of Zürich and Prof. I. Oye, Pharm. Inst. University of Oslo
During the past thirty years, research into schizophrenia has focused mainly on the dopamine hypothesis of schizophrenia. Drawbacks of the dopamine hypothesis, however, arise from the observation that dopamine antagonists seem to be significant only for positive symptoms of schizophrenia. There is compelling evidence from recent studies of neurochemical pathology, functional imaging, clinical and experimental pharmacology, and the study of model psychoses that schizophrenic symptoms might also be related to a glutamatergic and/or serotonergic neurotransmitter dysbalance (glutamate and serotonin hypotheses of schizophrenia).

What is Schizophrenia?
Schizophrenia is a devastating brain disorder—the most chronic and disabling of the severe mental illnesses. People with schizophrenia often suffer terrifying symptoms such as hearing internal voices not heard by others, or believing that other people are reading their minds, controlling their thoughts, or plotting to harm them. These symptoms may leave them fearful and withdrawn. more>>
The first signs of schizophrenia typically emerge in young people in their teens or twenties; in rare cases, schizophrenia can appear in childhood. Symptoms including hallucinations, delusions, disordered thinking, unusual speech or behavior, and social withdrawal impair the ability to interact with others. more>>
Available treatments can relieve many symptoms, but most people with schizophrenia continue to suffer some symptoms throughout their lives. However, new treatment advances, particularly within the last decade, have improved the outlook for many people with schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia Overview
Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe, and disabling mental illness. It affects men and women with equal frequency. People suffering from schizophrenia may have the following symptoms:
  • Delusions, false personal beliefs held with conviction in spite of reason or evidence to the contrary, not explained by that person's cultural context
    Hallucinations, perceptions (can be sound, sight, touch, smell, or taste) that occur in the absence of an actual external stimulus (Auditory hallucinations, those of voice or other sounds, are the most common type of hallucinations in schizophrenia.)
    Disorganized thoughts and behaviors
    Disorganized speech
    Catatonic behavior, in which the affected person's body may be rigid and the person may be unresponsive
The term schizophrenia is Greek in origin, and in the Greek meant "split mind." This is not an accurate medical term. In Western culture, some people have come to believe that schizophrenia refers to a split-personality disorder. These are two very different disorders, and people with schizophrenia do not have separate personalities. Schizophrenia and other mental health disorders have fairly strict criteria for diagnosis. Time of onset as well as length and characteristics of symptoms are all factors. The active symptoms of schizophrenia must be present at least 6 months, or only 1 month if treated.

Biol Psychiatry 2001 Feb 1;49(3):258-67
N icotine and other nicotinic agonists have been found to improve performance on attention and memory tasks. Clinical studies using nicotine skin patches have demonstrated the efficacy of nicotine in treating cognitive impairments associated with Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Experimental animal studies have demonstrated the persistence of nicotine-induced working memory improvement with chronic exposure, in addition to the efficacy of a variety of nicotinic agonists. Mechanistic studies have found that alpha7 and alpha4beta2 nicotinic receptors in the hippocampus are critical for nicotinic involvement in cognitive function. Clinical and experimental animal studies provide mutually supporting information for the development of novel nicotinic therapies for cognitive dysfunction. Nicotine

This is a time of hope for people with schizophrenia and their families. Research is gradually leading to new and safer medications and unraveling the complex causes of the disease. Scientists are using many approaches from the study of molecular genetics to the study of populations to learn about schizophrenia. Methods of imaging the brain’s structure and function hold the promise of new insights into the disorder.
Schizophrenia as an Illness
Schizophrenia is found all over the world. The severity of the symptoms and long-lasting, chronic pattern of schizophrenia often cause a high degree of disability. Medications and other treatments for schizophrenia, when used regularly and as prescribed, can help reduce and control the distressing symptoms of the illness. However, some people are not greatly helped by available treatments or may prematurely discontinue treatment because of unpleasant side effects or other reasons. Even when treatment is effective, persisting consequences of the illness—lost opportunities, stigma, residual symptoms, and medication side effects—may be very troubling.
