I'm trying to read more about schizophrenia. My nephew was just diagnosed with schizophrenia and I had no idea to what degree he was experiencing symptoms until I took him on a camping trip. He displayed symptoms which left me in shock and I was not sure how to react to them. Just like Janet's son, he has been in and out of hospitals and misdiagnosed but now he is 22. He is demonstrating symptoms which I'm reading about and quite honestly, it scares me. Is it too late? Can he get better? I've read some schizophrenics need to be institutionalized. At what point do you know this needs to happen? Help.
