Schizophrenia and its related conditions are all too common among young adults and are prevalent in about 1% of the general population. This is a devastating disorder of thinking; if gone undetected and thus untreated it can lead to robbing an individual of his or her life's goals and aspirations as it develops. If unchecked, it can lead to either suicidal or violent behavior towards others because the affected individual may become plagued by increasing paranoia, bothersome auditory hallucinations commanding various actions, and a general withdrawal from reality. Lately some unfortunate cases of developing schizophrenia have made the news because of the tragic and deadly events they initiated. These have spurred controversial gun control debates and have brought mental illness to the forefront of these debates about government legislation nationally.
