Caroline de Sonneville, both Professors at the report that “People with long-term mental illness, including schizophrenia, are sensitive to the negative effects of unemployment, and experience barriers to work, due to stigma, prejudice, and discrimination”. Since, Schizophrenia is a disorder with a harsh stigma surrounding it that individuals with the disorder are “lunatics,” or “crazy people,” that talk to themselves it’s difficult for them to obtain jobs. Also, the delusions can make it difficult to decipher between what’s real and what isn’t. Another hindering symptom is disorderly speech which would make it harder for someone with Schizophrenia to communicate in a job setting. According to Eric W.Wu, a professor at Howard University, in hi study on the “The Economic Burden of Schizophrenia in America,” “Families reported spending 68 million dollars on their loved one with Schizophrenia”. Due to spending money on medication, in patient facilities and therapy for their loved one that is unemployed. Schizophrenia tends to take a toll on relationships, sexuality and romance for many patients. Schizophrenic patients tend to exhibit a lack of motivation to socialize with others. Without, proper medication an individual with Schizophrenia behaviour tends to fluctuate from acting normal one moment and the next having random outburst. The lack of motivation to socialize comes from onset depression being an side effect. This tends to occur when the individual isn’t balancing their condition with the right medication and therapy.
