People with schizophrenia have times when they see or experience reality differently to other people.

This means that they often see, hear, think or believe things which other people around them don’t.

For example, these could be things like thinking they are a famous person or that they are being persecuted (that other people are ‘against’ or out to get them).

Schizophrenia affects about one in 100 people at some point in their lives.
