      Hi, is this person being diagnosed with schizophrenia? Has he ever gone for treatment? Does he take medication? I would be happy to help in any way possible :)

      This is very common. You can't force him, and if it becomes debilitating I might recommended speaking about inpatient treatment, so he can't quit.

      Thank you. What do you mean when you say psychiatrist home

      Hi, First I want to strengthen you! Dealing with a loved one who suffers from schizophrenia is not easy … From my personal experience (I have been suffering from schizophrenia for a number of years), it is worthwhile to understand why he stopped. Most medications have severe side effects (some of which are not so pleasant to talk about). Luckily, today there is a fairly wide selection of medications to try ... If necessary I would recommend ordering a psychiatrist home.
