About

Schizophrenia is a mental illness that progresses with delusions or hallucinations, causes changes in interpersonal communication, thoughts and behaviors, continues with recovery and repetitions, and in which the interpretation of reality is impaired. Drug treatment alone is not sufficient in schizophrenia, and it is known that negative symptoms continue even in patients with a good response to drug treatment. For this reason, complementary therapies, psychosocial approaches and rehabilitation in addition to drug therapy increase the effectiveness of the treatment.
