I've been diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder. Does anyone at all, know what this is? And is there a group on empowHER for people diagnosed with this?

Hi Willow,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. Schizo-affective disorder is well understood but it is a combination of having delusions as well as mood issues. Mayo Clinic explanation/definitions can be found here  http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/schizoaffective-disorder/basics/definition/con-20029221. 


Psycho Central provides a link to a help group where you can sign up  here http://psychcentral.com/resources/Schizophrenia_and_Psychosis/Schizoaffective_Disorder/Support_Groups/.


I hope this information helps. Please keep us updated.
