Overcoming adversity should always be a reason to celebrate. When an alcoholic or addict finally makes the commitment to sobriety, it's usually after a long, hard struggle with addiction. The same is true of individuals with mental disorders such as schizophrenia. While most people have witnessed an addict's struggles at one point in their lives, few may have witnessed the devastation and struggle of maintaining an even keel where mental health is concerned. Stability can be key to maintaining that balancing act between control and relapse. That's where friends, therapy, social groups and the medical profession should all be counted upon to help you reach stability and stay there.
