Schizophrenia is a psychiatric disorder in which a person’s mood, knowledge, thought and several other characteristics gets disturbed. We can notice most of the adults and old people with few symptoms of schizophrenia, which are most commonly left unidentified. The exact cause of schizophrenia is not yet known. The person feels that they are being constantly watched, they feel the presence of someone or something, which is not actually there. They are always suspicious and think that other people are gossiping and thinking about them.
Possible causes of Schizophrenia
Though the exact cause of schizophrenia is not known there are few factors, which contribute to the cause of schizophrenia.
- Genetic factors: People with a family history of schizophrenia are at higher risk of getting schizophrenia.
- Environmental factors: Environmental factors include excessive stress during pregnancy or later stages of life. Several other factors during pregnancy and childhood are responsible for causing schizophrenia. These factors are:
Sings and symptoms of schizophrenia
- Hallucination: To see, feel or hear anything that really does not exist is known as hallucination.
- Delusion: A thought or belief of a person, which is either false or impossible in reality is known as delusion.
- Thought and speech disturbances: The thought process and speech of a schizophrenic will be disorganized, due to which he or she will fumble or is distracted as they are unable to align their thoughts.
- Difficulty in concentrating: It is difficult for people suffering from schizophrenia to concentrate on the task at hand.
- Erratic behaviour: People suffering from schizophrenia tend to behave erratically, either they will be too jumpy or will be perfectly still for hours at a stretch. Most people belief that those who are suffering from schizophrenia are often violent in nature, which actually is not the case.
Treatment for schizophrenia
Schizophrenia can be treated, if identified at an early stage. It is best advised to consult a psychiatrist the moment you spot the symptoms. Anti psychotic drugs, self help behaviour change, counselling and rehabilitation are few treatment modalities available for schizophrenia.
I have lost my sex drive after marriage. It’s been 5 months since marriage, but I don’t feel like having sex. I don’t daydream or get aroused. Before marriage I used to get excited and wet, now I don’t get wet also.
With technology surpassing human relations today , its really difficult for anyone to imagine a life without mobile phone. Earlier it used to be just a means of communication but now it has become more of a necessity.
The first day of school is a difficult time for both the parents and the child. Separating their child from them for the first time can be very emotional for the parents. The difficulty is compounded when the child continues to cry every day thereafter. Sometimes the child starts going to school without becoming undue anxious but starts to avoid school later. There may be a blatant refusal by the child to go to the school. These indeed are very difficult situations to handle as emotions on both sides are running high.
However, this is good news. Though it seems like a problem, we, parents should be aware that its an opportunity for prevention of long-term problems. Despite being an opportunity, if not managed properly, may further aggravate the problems.
To strengthen regulatory parts of the child’s brain so that s/he is better able to deal with the anxiety. Rule out real dangers including physical or sexual abuse. At school as well as at home. Assess the methods used by the teacher to curb normal separation anxiety and anxiety of a new place. The children of this age are able to tell the problems which they are facing at the school. We can use many methods including open-ended questions, leading questions or role plays. Once, a teacher told the crying child that her parents would never come if the child cried. As expected the situation worsened. Ensure the child is not being bullied. Sometimes the bullying starts at this age. Chances are higher if the child is younger in the class. 3 yr 1 mth child and 3 yr 11 mths children get admission in the same class.
We need to get her off the school for few days straight away if the cause of the problem is not clear, to ensure we get to the root of the problem. A doctor can be consulted to rule out any physical problems which may be the root cause of anxiety e. G. Thyroid problems, anemia etc.
Once it is ensured that the child is just dealing with the normal stress of separation and new environment with the new teacher and new students, we can start to work on increasing her coping abilities.
- Acknowledging her fears.
- Normalize fear.
- Provide support that the child is not alone in this difficult phase.
- Give examples that everyone is afraid while going to school.
- Emphasise the importance of schooling.
- With all the creative reason one can come out with.
- Have to be both practical and fun reasons.
- Address the cause.
Eg. If the teacher scolds her because she disturbs the class or if she slaps or pushes another child out of anger/frustration.
Reason it out.
What should the teacher do if someone else slapped her? usually, the child gets the reason. This is the way to emphasise to the child that, though the parents love the child and will always be there for her, but right is right and wrong is wrong. By this we also worked in unison with the teacher to improve the child’s behaviour.
If the method of the teacher is not appropriate, then the parents can talk to the teacher to find a reasonable way to deal with the child, keeping in mind her sensitivity.
- Emphasise that the child needs to learn to control her fears.
- That it’s a slow process but if the child continues to put in an effort she will be able to do it. Ask if she is ready to fight her fears.
- Another very important step.
- If yes then great. Continue going to school.
If not then consider few days off for the child. But at home keep telling the child about your concern that her fear may again create problems for her when she will start going to school again. So she should seriously consider fighting her fears.

Being a mental health professional it hurts when we can't prevent suicide. Today's world is a virtual world. Rather than real one we all live in virtual world and virtual relationships are getting stronger day by day rather than real face to face relations. In today's so called world of technology. We forget to obey certain basic rules. We are present with our family/child physically but not mentally. We don't give them a quality time it's not quantity but quality that matters.
We have become insensitive to basic trivial issues of them because we don't listen to them. We take all things for granted we just want to give orders, and want our child to perform always well. We expect all good from our child and when he/she undermine our demands we treat them like anything we compare them with others and by doing dat we force them to do something which is out of there reach and we fail to unreveal there potentials and ability friends we hv to understand dat each human being is a special.
We can not blame schools they will follow what syllabus is telling them government should relook in to d syllabus and make it more acceptable for children's. We can't eliminate stress as it is inevitable...but we can make our child more receptive and resilient to situations and for which spiritual inclination is must:
1) give them Unconditional love and positive regard
2) make them realize about yr availability and presence( sense of security )
3) do listen to them, be more receptive.
4) try to solve there problems
5) empathize with them
6) appreciate them
7) learn to tolerate
8) nurture your child
9) be sensitive to there issues..
10) make them realize that you are always der with him/her
11) understand them
12) take a break (outing/holiday/leisure)
While most children share a strong bond with their parents, especially the mother, some infants are unable to establish lasting relationships with their parents or caregivers. This is known as attachment disorder. It is a rare yet serious condition as it affects the child’s relationships at a later stage and also triggers delinquent behavior. Children, who have been abandoned, orphaned or are victims of abuse are the most vulnerable to this condition.
What causes attachment disorder?
The exact cause for attachment disorder is not yet understood. However, researchers have put together a number of viable hypotheses for this. One such hypothesis suggests that when needs of a child are ignored or when he begins to feel unwanted, the child begins to expect hostility, negativity and rejection. This is a learnt response and the child begins to feel that his needs are unwanted. With time, these responses make the child untrusting and he withdraws into himself to avoid social contact. This affects the development in the brain and causes attachment problems that affect the child’s personality and future relationships.
Risks associated with it
Some children are at a higher risk of attachment disorder than others. This includes
- Children living in orphanages or other such institutes
- Children whose caregivers are changed frequently
- Children who have had prolonged hospitalization
- Neglected children
- Children who have suffered from physical, sexual or verbal abuse
- Children living in extreme poverty
- Children born to parents with mental conditions or anger management problems
- Children born to a mother suffering from post partum depression
There are two types of attachment disorders; inhibited and disinhibited.
- Inhibited attachment disorder: Children suffering from inhibited attachment disorder are likely to be:
- Unresponsive to comforting ie. they shun all types of relationships and generally do not get along with their peers or caregivers.
- Disinhibited attachment disorder: On the other hand, children suffering from disinhibited attachment are likely to:
- Seek attention
- Display inappropriate behavior
- Frequently break social boundaries
- Be inappropriately familial and attached to selective figures.
Additionally, children suffering from either type of attachment disorder are manipulative, destructive, moody and lack compassion and remorse.
Effects of attachment disorder
If not managed properly in its early stages, this disorder can continue into adulthood. This leads to:
- Relationship problems with peers, friends and family members
- Low self esteem
- Anger management
- Academic problems
- They are also at a high risk for drug abuse and alcohol addiction
