In the third episode of our “Art of Psychiatry” series, we will discuss schizophrenia, a chronic mental illness that affects 1% of the population. We will focus especially on the patient experience of what it’s like to live with schizophrenia. We’ll start by reviewing the key symptoms of schizophrenia as well as other diagnoses to consider in your differential. We’ll then discuss what it’s like to interview a patient with schizophrenia and provide some tips for your next interview. As usual, we’ll feature songs and writings about schizophrenia to help you better understand the disease from a patient’s perspective.
