1.1 INTRODUCTION
Despite the research in medical science touching new height, schizophrenia is
still remains one of the most frightening and serious of all mental illnesses. No
other medical or mental disorder arouses as much anxiety in the doctor, the media
and general public. Inspite of the availability of effective treatments patients and
their families still finds it hard to access good care. The early observation that the
illness is typified by the disconnection or splitting of the psychic functions led to
the nomenclature of the term schizophrenia. Unfortunately, this has led to the
misconception that the illness is characterized by a split personality which it is
not (Picchioni & Murray, 2007).
