Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe, and disabling brain disorder that
has affected people throughout history. About 1 percent of Americans
have this illness.
People with the disorder may hear voices other people don’t hear. They
may believe other people are reading their minds, controlling their
thoughts, or plotting to harm them. This can terrify people with the
illness and make them withdrawn or extremely agitated.
