Schizophrenia is a leading cause of disability among people with mental illness, and the disorder puts sufferers at risk of homelessness, incarceration, and serious health problems.
The disorder commonly first appears in late adolescence or early adulthood. Onset tends to be earlier in men than in women.
About half of people with schizophrenia are also affected by another mental and/or behavioral disorder.
Almost 5% of people with schizophrenia will die by suicide. This is a much higher suicide rate than that in the general population. Suicide risk is greatest in the early stages of the disorder.
