Skisofrenie

Help só mense met skisofrenie

Geestesgesondheid

  1. Pasiënte bied dikwels weerstand teen behandeling. Maak dus seker hulle gebruik hul medikasie en kom opvolg-afsprake na, anders kan die psigotiese simptome terugkeer.
  2. Help hulle om realistiese doelwitte te stel om weer in die gewone lewe te funksioneer. Bly positief – pasiënte wat gekritiseer of onder druk geplaas word, kan terugval.
  3. Bly respekvol, ondersteunend en deernisvol, selfs al doen of sê die pasiënt bisarre dinge. Moet egter nie onvanpaste gedrag verdra nie.
