KATHERINE DELOIS HEALTH AND WELLNESS PROGRAM
LIVE WELL, BE WELL
Schizophrenia is a chronic brain disorder that affects about one percent of the population. When schizophrenia is active, symptoms can include delusions, hallucinations, trouble with thinking and concentration, and lack of motivation. However, when these symptoms are treated, most people with schizophrenia will greatly improve over time.
Connecting communities to resources is key to the K. D. Mack Foundation’s mission of improving the quality of life through improving the awareness of the impact of dementia and schizophrenia in communities.
