Schizophrenia is a cruel disease that attacks about 8 people out of every 1000. It often strikes in the adolescent years just as opportunities for most people are beginning to unfold. The financial costs involved in dealing with schizophrenia are staggering and the human costs within families are incalculable. This workshop will examine the nature, causes, symptoms, issues and treatments of schizophrenia. Most importantly, it will explain what this disease looks like in it’s early stages and will outline what parents can do to help their child. (3 hours)
