<http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=new-genetic-model-schi>. Bipolar Disorder is... Bipolar is described as a major affective disorder that is characterized by episodes of mania and depression. Schizophrenia is... Schizophrenia is a psychotic disorder characterized by loss of contact with the environment, by noticeable deterioration in the level of functioning in everyday life, and by disintegration of personality expressed as disorder of feeling, thought (as in delusions), perception (as in hallucinations), and behavior called also dementia praecox Bipolar disorder: there are 4 types of Bipolar disorder, all of which have different symptoms!! Bipolar I:
requires at least one full blown mania episodes in lifetime
mania cannot be related to any other sort of causes
may never experience depression
Bipolar II:
at least one full blown depressive episodes in lifetime
depression cannot be related to any other sort of causes
must also have some sort of hypomania episodes
Cyclothymic Disorder:
multiple depressive and hypomanic episodes
not enough to be considered either Bipolar I or II
can lead to serious irritability
Bipolar NOS(not otherwise specified):
manic or depressive episodes
cannot be labeled as unipolar depression
episodes cannot fit into any other of the Bipolar Schizophrenia: there are three types of symptoms for schizophrenia Positive Symptoms:
not really positive!!!
the Hallucinations can lead to severe paranoia
Delusions- false beliefs that defy logic or any culturally accepted statement that cannot be questioned

lack of motivation
appears lazy to others

impairments in memory, learning, concentration, and ability to make sound decisions
interfere with the affected person's ability to learn new things, remember things learned, and use the skills they once had
it becomes difficult to keep a job Schizophrenia: the affected person will never be able to fully function again! In many cases, the person is unable to work and must rely on others for the rest of their life Bipolar Disorder: Will have a more likely chance to function fully in society will have serious emotional distresses that they must work through with their loved ones You become labeled for your entire life! "You are to blame" In many cases the family is blamed... sometimes it is the family members themselves blaming themselves and others.
Remember these are myths!!! Schizophrenia is caused by bad parenting
People with Schizophrenia are just faking it and by believing them, the family is just encouraging their bad behavior
People with Schizophrenia are drug addicts and the family should be controling their addictions, not giving them pills
Schizophrenia isn't treatable Family and Friends have proven to be the best help when trying to overcome problems, be them Personality Disorders or just crappy boyfriends. isn't it unfair that the people we love most of all get the most blame for something that no one could stop? In Schizophrenics, their brains' gray matter(brain tissue comprised of nerve cells) is slowly deteriorating, their families have to witness their brother, or sister, or son or daughter or so on slowly dissapear. Bipolar patients have uncontrolable mood shifts that can result in anger that they themselves cannot even explain. They lash out on the closest people to them at the moment of their anger, not meaning to hurt the other person, but still doing so. No one is to blame. Even though society doesn't always make it seem like that Bipolar disorder is a heartless beast that parties withyour life and sticks you with the bill" With Bipolar Disorder comes serious "mood swings"; one week you could be in a high that's so good it's scary and two days later you could want to kill yourself (or someone else) Schizophrenia is an actual brain malfunction:
enlarged ventricles
deteriorating gray matter
serious abnormalities in white matter Before we finish, Here are some people you may have heard of who have Schizophrenia:
