Hi I think there are few points here:

1) the nature of schizophrenia as a mental illness

2) the lack of insight & the risk of relapse & deterioration

3) compliance therapy & how to engage the patient

4) the new reforms of the MHAct & its role in prevention as well as treatment

5) risk assessment & management including past history,difficulty engaging the patient & any comorbidity such as substance misuse

6) the impact of the illness on the patient level of functioning

I hope this will help .
