Schizophrenia is astoundingly common – the experts say it strikes one out of every one hundred people, and the most common time for it to strike is when a child has just reached his mid to late teens, or sometimes his early 20’s. Just when a child’s future is opening up to him, this devastating illness can rob him of his ability to think clearly, and subject him to a future of hallucinations, delusions, and an inability even to organize his daily life. But the good news is that – unlike schizophrenia that strikes in very early childhood – the adolescent-onset variety is frequently highly treatable, and young people have a greater likelihood of fully regaining their lives. But it’s up to their families to act quickly and decisively – to recognize the symptoms, and be relentless in getting and maintaining the expert treatment their children need. Learn how that’s done, on this memorable episode of Keeping Kids Healthy.
