Schizophrenia is a bit of a broad term for several disorders that cause people to interpret reality abnormally. It usually onsets sometime between adolescence and age 35, and can be accompanied by other conditions such as major depression or anxiety. As such, those with Schizophrenia (or any other mental disorders) are more likely to have substance abuse problems; often using drugs and alcohol as coping mechanisms. This disorder isn’t to be confused with multiple personalities disorder, and though Schizophrenia translated from Greek means “split mind” it’s rather referring to a splitting of mental functions-not personalities. That is to say Schizophrenia mainly affects cognition (the processing of information) but also contributes to chronic behavioral and emotional problems.
Schizophrenia is actually more prevalent than most people think it to be with about 24 million people being affected by it world wide. 
Symptoms:
Seeing or hearing things that are’t real (Hallucinations)
Believing something with strong conviction despite contradictory  evidence (Delusions) 
Disorganized thoughts or speech  
Falsely believing that others are trying to hurt you of you loved ones (Paranoia)
Lack of emotion or emotional response 
Difficulty remembering or fully concentrating 
Lack of motivation 
Neglect of personal hygiene
Social withdrawal 
Being in a catatonic or otherwise unresponsive state
Disorganized behavior
