Schizoaffective disorder affects approximately 0.3% of the population and is often confused with schizophrenia. Schizoaffective disorder differs from schizophrenia because it involves a combination of schizophrenic symptoms as well as mood disorder symptoms like mania and depression.
There are two main types of schizoaffective disorder: bipolar type and depressive type. In addition to schizoaffective disorders, someone may have other disorders present, like a co-occurring mental health disorder or substance use disorder.
