Schizophrenia - Self care
What are self care and management skills?
Self care and management skills can help you to understand and overcome symptoms of schizophrenia. Your health or social worker may offer to support you with self management. You may also be offered training and peer support from people who have recovered from schizophrenia. All these people can help you to manage your symptoms by caring for yourself.
Self care focuses on:
- your diet,
- daily routine, and
- relationships and emotions.
You can also learn about the following:
- Your illness.
- How to take medication.
- How to recognise when you are becoming unwell.
- How to recognise what your triggers are.
- How to get help.
- What to do in a crisis.
- How to achieve and maintain recovery.
