Schizophrenia is a mental illness characterised by psychosis, apathy and withdrawal, as well as cognitive impairment. It usually develops between late adolescence and young adult age, and although no significant differences in the prevalence of schizophrenia have been observed between men and women overall, there are differences in age at onset and tendency to present certain symptoms. Schizophrenia constitutes a significant burden to social and professional life, with more severe forms also causing basic self-care problems. With its life-long duration, it is one of the leading causes of long-term disability worldwide.
