dc.description.abstract Schizophrenia is a mental disorder that is comprised of multiple types of symptoms and is recognized as one of ten most affecting mental disorders in the world disorders affecting nearly .7% of the world population. Due to forces of globalization and mass migration of persons from the Global South to North American and Western-European countries, there must be a reconsideration of how treatment for this prevalent disorder to attain a culturally-competent treatment guideline accepted by the international psychiatric community. The first chapter is an assessment of the criteria that defines schizophrenia and the prevalence and incidence rates that require for there to be a focus on urban residential zones. The second chapter looks at the cultural views and various expressions of schizophrenia, and looking at what the potential risk factors are. The final chapter assesses how treatment has been performed thus far and then trying to synthesis potential guidelines that would promote optimal culturally-competent treatment.
