Re: My best friend is schizophrenic

I don't have (diagnosed) schizophrenia, but I have psychosis and one tip I would say is if he says he doesn't want to be in a relationship, leave it at that, and if he doesn't want to let his guard down in front of you, be happy he can even talk to you. It's hard to trust anyone, especially letting your guard down about a mental illness, even harder with something like schizophrenia. If he's going to let you see the real him you'll have to let him go at it with his own pace.
