Schizophrenia is a major mental disorder that imposes a significant burden on the individual including poor quality of life and increased morbidity and mortality; it disrupts interpersonal relationships and family structures, and has significant economic costs to society. While there are substantial limitations to current treatments, an integrated package of biopsychosocial interventions is essential to alleviate the negative impact of the disorder and enhance quality of life. Active early intervention, in particular, can improve long-term outcomes.
