Depression is defined as an illness when depressed mood or lack of interest and caring persist, and interfere with a child or adolescent’s ability to function.

  • Schizophrenia

    Schizophrenia is a disorder of thought and perception, usually with an onset in young adulthood and a chronic, deteriorating course. The hallmarks of the disorder include delusions, hallucinations, and a deterioration in functioning, sometimes severe.

    A person with schizophrenia becomes increasingly preoccupied with his interior world to the exclusion of the larger reality in which we all find ourselves. This leads to a neglect of the ordinary demands of daily life, especially concerning interpersonal relatedness.
