Schizophrenia affects not only the patient suffering from the symptoms, but the family members of the affected patient, community members and the nursing/ medical team caring for the affected patient.
1. What do you think a family goes through who has a member who is suffering from schizophrenia?
2. Do you think a patient’s diagnosis of schizophrenia is easily accepted, it’s treatment compliance and acceptance of the diagnosis by the patient’s family differs based on culture? If yes, give examples. If no, give a reason.
3. Why do you think some schizophrenics have a hard time staying on medication?
