Summary:

Schizoaffective disorder is a mental illness that can affect all areas of a person’s life, especially regarding thinking and perception of reality. Signs of schizoaffective disorder include symptoms of schizophrenia, such as psychosis, and symptoms of a mood disorder, such as depression or mania. Assessment is used to understand the client in his or her environment and to form a basis for treatment; the level of risk associated with suicide prioritizes treatment options, including medication, psychotherapy, family therapy, substance abuse treatment, and ancillary services. Evaluating effectiveness can help the clinician, client, and family members better understand progress in treatment. Relapse prevention is the final component to a treatment plan. The goal of relapse prevention is for the client to maintain a satisfying life with minimal interference from psychiatric symptoms.
