There is a perception that schizophrenia is both uncommon and impossible to treat. In fact, it affects about 650,000 people in the UK, 2.2 million in the US, and some 50 million globally; and, the treatment success rate with today's medication and therapy can be high.
Bipolar disorder affects around one in 100 people, and typically develops in late adolescence or early adulthood, affecting women and men equally. Often not recognized as an illness, it can cause years of suffering before it is properly diagnosed and treated. Like diabetes or heart disease, bipolar disorder is a long-term illness that must be carefully managed throughout a person’s life.
