People with disorganized schizophrenia can benefit from health and wellness strategies once they are stable on medication treatment. When their severe symptoms subside and they are in recovery, they can participate in individual or group therapy to maintain their health and wellness. Some mental health organizations offer meditation, yoga, and other classes for people with disorganized schizophrenia. Participating in a group allows members to share wellness tips and acknowledge struggles in their lives. Members can discuss exercise, nutrition, and social activities that help them stay well. Group therapy can also help people with disorganized schizophrenia learn coping skills to maintain their recovery. In group therapy, people should also be reminded about the harmful effects of drugs and alcohol. These substances can make symptoms of disorganized schizophrenia worse and can possibly cause a relapse.
