Schizophrenia is a severe mental illness where individuals have troubles with perceiving reality, causing severe problems functioning. Schizophrenia is characterized by symptoms of psychosis, which include delusions (strong beliefs that persist despite lack of evidence or evidence to the contrary) and hallucinations (seeing or hearing things that others do not). Note that symptoms of psychosis may be seen in other conditions other than schizophrenia, such as severe depression, bipolar disorder, and various medical conditions.
