Schizophreniform disorder is a mental illness characterized by symptoms similar to schizophrenia, but with a shorter duration and a lack of functional decline making it a distinct disorder. It is diagnosed when symptoms of schizophrenia are present for a significant portion of the time within one month, but signs of disruption are not present for the full six months required for the diagnosis of schizophrenia. Treatment typically involves a combination of antipsychotic medication and psychotherapy. The goal of treatment is to manage symptoms and support the individual's recovery, with the understanding that symptoms may reoccur in the future.
