What risks can schizoaffective disorder cause?
The risk of suicide is higher for the first few years after your symptoms start. Seek treatment early and make a crisis plan. The right treatment can help control your symptoms and therefore lower the risk of suicide.
You can make a crisis plan yourself or you can ask someone to help you. A crisis plan is a plan of action that you will follow to help with suicidal feelings. Usually a plan will include activities that help you to relax and a list of people. The people may be your friends, a health professional or a charity.
