Can schizophrenia be prevented?

There is no exact way to prevent schizophrenia. Recognizing the condition and getting treatment early may help get symptoms under control before they become too serious. If you have an increased risk of schizophrenia, avoiding illegal drug use, reducing stress, getting enough sleep and starting treatment as soon as possible may help minimize symptoms, or prevent them from getting worse.
