10 Elements of Successful Schizophrenia Treatment, Part 1

Basic Understanding

Eugen Bleuler, a Swiss psychiatrist, coined the term “schizophrenia” in 1911. It derives from the Greek words schizo (divided) and phrene (heart) (mind). Bleuler chose this moniker to underline the mental uncertainty and fragmented thinking that plagues those who suffer from the disorder. 

Some people are more vulnerable than others. People have predispositions and susceptibilities to schizophrenia, according to stress models for schizophrenia. Some people are more susceptible to these risks than others for various reasons involving genetics, biology, and experience. However, having a predisposition to schizophrenia isn’t enough to cause the illness.

Our Healing Message

The road to recovery is a long one, with many ups and downs along the way. It’s critical to acknowledge and appreciate accomplishments. Remember that there is hope even in the most difficult or stressful situations.

Your loved one may be able to live a productive and meaningful life, and you may support him or her on their path to recovery. There are many elements in successful treatment for schizophrenia. Here are ten essential steps that Blair Wellness Group believes will help for the successful treatment of schizophrenia.

10. Caregiving

Family members or other close relatives frequently offer schizophrenia care. It is critical to ensure that people with this mental illness can live their lives to the fullest. Caregiving is a two-way street. You collaborate to help one another in a courteous and rewarding way. Blair Wellness Group desires to establish proper caregiving for anyone who has a mental illness. Studies show that appropriate care and consideration to the mentally ill can improve their condition and provide structure for future growth with the support of a family member or loved one.

9. Basic Daily Needs

A person with schizophrenia may require assistance with basic daily chores, and it is your responsibility as a caregiver to assist with task organization. If you’re not naturally organized or already have difficulty managing your own life, you might want to consider whether the caregiving job is good for you. You may need assistance with arranging appointments, getting to appointments, developing routines and a predictable environment, and setting realistic objectives, among other things.

8. Medication

The use of medication is an integral part of the treatment of schizophrenia. By blocking particular chemical receptors in the brain, medication can help ease symptoms of schizophrenia such as delusions, hallucinations, and disordered thinking. Antipsychotics are the most common drugs for schizophrenia.

7 Practice Self Care

Both the person with schizophrenia and the caregiver must practice adequate self-care. This doesn’t merely include taking baths; it also entails taking simple steps to guarantee that your health is a top priority. Exercising, eating healthy, not abusing alcohol or drugs, practicing mindfulness, and staying optimistic with a good sense of humor.

6 Crisis Plan

Do you have a strategy in place for what you’ll do in a crisis? The first step is to recognize relapse symptoms such as insomnia, social disengagement, poor personal hygiene, paranoia, aggression, hallucinations, and so on. As a caregiver, it’s critical to know what to do in a crisis for someone with schizophrenia. You should obtain all contact information for the doctor, psychologist, hospital, etc. Have a game plan for severe psychosis and a plan to give genuine assistance when the time comes. Contact Blair Wellness Group for more information about schizophrenia wellness plans.
