Learn about schizophrenia. Education about the disorder can help motivate the person with the disease to stick to the treatment plan.

Support groups for people with schizophrenia can help them reach out to others facing similar challenges. Support groups may also help family and friends cope. 3. Stay focused on goals. Managing schizophrenia is an ongoing process. Keeping treatment goals in mind can help the person with schizophrenia stay motivated.
