Even today the disorder is poorly understood, and the exact causes of schizophrenia are still unknown. There is also no surefire cure for schizophrenia, although developments in antipsychotic drugs have started to provide a degree of solace for some schizophrenics. With no cures or preventions yet available, this means people from all classes and walks of life can struggle with this little-understood illness, even the great geniuses and artists of recent history.

Read on to find out more about some of the world's famous figures who have lived with schizophrenia.
