Condition commonly mistaken for MPD (Multiple Personality Disorder). Schizophrenia like the name suggests means a split, but not a split in personality. Schizophrenia is a split in perception that causes an individual to become detached, isolated and remote from reality and from the rest of society. A person experiencing schizophrenia might see things in a way that he can only understand. He might also experience hallucinations such as hearing voices and seeing things, paranoia, feelings and thoughts of persecution and feeling like he is in another world.

Formerly called "dementia praecox" by Emil Kraeplin, and renamed "schizophrenia" in 1911 by the Swiss psychiatrist Eugen Bleuler. About 1% of the adult population in the United States is affected by schizophrenia. The DSM-IV lists three specific types of schizophrenia: disorganized, catatonic, and paranoid.

A stigmatized mental disorder that isn't biologically understood, but can be diagnosed with the patients confirmation of auditory and visual hallucinations when the patient is sober. It could be drug induced or something involving these features, but a symptom of another category like schizo-affective or h.p.p.d. is possible due to the broad terms and should be inferred upon with a licensed Doctor in case it's being caused by something you can change.
